Brought to you by Inside Housing, this punchy one-day conference will facilitate dialogue between housing associations, social and health care providers, local authorities, research bodies and technology providers to ensure the sector is creating the right housing environment to support elderly tenants in their own homes.
The Ageing in Place conference will reach out to landlords with ageing tenants, providing them with guidance, case studies and the latest thinking on this topic, and bringing them together with the suppliers who are providing ever more innovative and cost-effective solutions.
This is the first and only conference for housing associations and local authorities focusing exclusively on older general needs tenants, rather than special needs or extra care tenants. The agenda will address the growing collaboration between housing with adult social and health care and the role of social housing providers. Engaging content will include a showcase for a segment of assistive technology that can be used in general housing stock to support older tenants in their own homes and a consultation with ageing tenants to put them at the centre of planning and decision making.
