This report, produced for Shelter and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, looks at current and future provision of housing for older people. It shows that the traditional perception of housing for older people is at odds with how older people actually live. In order to meet the demands of the growing population of older people, developers and policy makers will need to broaden their ideas of what older people actually look for in housing.
