Ageing Well at Home

Care & Repair England has published a brochure setting out the case for why ‘Ageing Well at Home’ needs to be the cornerstone of national policies concerning older people.

It challenges decision makers to keep sight of the centrality of home in the current debates about health, social care and housing.

Based on the views gathered from older people at events and meetings the brochure sets out an agenda for action including: –

  • independent, impartial advice on options
  • practical services and affordable warmth
  • better joining up of health, social care and housing
  • good planning and future proofing
  • greater involvement of older people in local planning and decision making
  • a spectrum of housing options from fast affordable repairs and adaptations to existing housing to new housing designed with older people’s needs in mind
