About Ageing in Place
Social housing providers (housing associations, councils and Almos) are facing a demographic time bomb: their tenants are ageing and living longer with more complex needs. There is insufficient specialist accommodation and many people as they age express a preference to stay in their own homes.
With social care budgets stretched, landlords are increasingly on the frontline – even those which do not traditionally have a care business. It is imperative for individual tenants and for social landlords as businesses to ensure that tenants are adequately supported as their care needs continue.
From a business perspective, keeping tenants independent is crucial. This event 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. The event must provide practical solutions that could be implemented immediately as well as longer term strategic direction.
The conference programme will address key topics including:
Demographic Time Bomb
Panel discussion with residents
Improving health and well-being in older residents
Exploring funding solutions and personal finances
Collaborating to support ageing tenants in their own homes
Designing accommodation where people can age in place
