Homes and Ageing in England

There is a strong case to be made for prevention through core housing improvements. This briefing note adds to our wider understanding of the close relationship between poor housing for older people and demands on NHS care. It builds on the previous publication by BRE (The cost of poor housing to the NHS) and provides much needed evidence that can be used by local government and health services in respect of older people. It is very relevant to the preparation of Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategies, through using this new information to help build a strong cross-agency housing dimension to health plans and for understanding the returns on investment that can be made across sectors.
