Later life housing creates healthier, happier and longer lives, removing many of the worries of old age.
For those looking to downsize in their later years, it provides a balance between maintaining independence in a home that they own or rent while having access to the necessary level of support and care. It also addresses loneliness by increasing companionship and improving safety and security.
This campaign seeks to raise the profile of later life housing so older people are aware of the benefits it provides. It also calls on national and local government to do more to encourage building in this sector.
