Publications Marking United Nations’ International Day of Older Persons / UK Older People’s Day (Housing LIN)

Summary

In broad support of the UN International Day of Older Persons and the UK Older People’s Day, the Housing Learning and Improvement Network (LIN) has made available two documents which discuss the needs of older people (from the housing perspective).

The first document, Housing LIN Viewpoint No. 46, considers the shortfall of Extra Care Housing within Essex and the consequent problems this causes for many people with dementia and high care needs; people for whom traditional care homes may be too expensive, relatively ineffective and inappropriate.
