All Party Parliamentary Group on Housing and Care for Older People: Living Well At Home Inquiry

With the significant growth in ‘baby boomers’ in the UK over the next 30 years, the APPG recommends a fresh approach to Government thinking so that, in future, older people are at the heart of their communities through ‘age-friendly’ planning, design and housing strategies that promote «living well at home». It provided evidence that building new attractive apartments will not only provide a lifestyle choice for older people but also ensure that it can be adapted at a later date to accommodate a change in circumstance, thereby enabling someone to stay put due to frailty, illness or disability
