The Housing Forum launch Older and Wiser Report
The Housing Forum's first 2021 event is the launch of the Older & Wiser Report – ‘a practical guide to commissioning, developing and operating age friendly homes’ which Caroline Dove and Paul Maddock contributed to and which two age-friendly housing case studies by HTA's housing; Hanham Hall and Oak Tree.
New way forward for tackling the fast-growing shortage of housing for older people is being proposed in a new guide by the Housing Forum. Titled Older and Wiser, the guide looks to address society’s failure to provide suitable homes for the ageing population by setting out a range of practical suggestions with 16 case studies demonstrating diverse solutions and inspired thinking.
Based on the experience and knowledge of Housing Forum members, Older and Wiser shows how housing associations, local councils and private developers who may be looking to develop specialist housing for the first time, can deliver greater numbers and a wider range of accommodation to meet the needs of older people. Providing better and more suitable housing provision will enable people to live more independently for longer. The Housing Forum's website.
