Retirement housing: Residents’ experiences

This report from the NHBC Foundation is based on information gathered from focus groups and responses to detailed questionnaires regarding resident living within retirement housing.

Whilst painting a generally positive picture of residents’ experiences, it also identifies areas in which additional focus and attention to detail could improve those experiences.

What the report also highlights is the need for retirement housing to be designed to include facilities which allow those with reducing mobility to maintain an independent lifestyle for as long as possible.
