Exploring the specialist housing and care homes, that improve quality of life for older generations.
London needs to provide housing that is suitable and adaptable to older generations, previously built on the peripheries, care homes and later living accommodation are now being integrated into urban areas with greater access to, social, cultural and economic activity and better transport links. Not only is this benefiting their quality of life, it is contributing to the economy and adding value to our high streets and town centres.
This NLA webinar explores specialist housing and care homes being built for older generations. How are these homes helping people live fuller lives for longer, and encouraging healthier active lifestyles? How are they being integrated into local areas? How can homes adapt to accommodate the changing needs of residents and how can the design of homes help aid older generations with debilitating mental and physical illnesses? What are the emerging trends in this sector that could help tackle the shortage of housing for older people in the UK?
