Housing provision


simply do not have enough of the type of care and accommodation required to cater for a quarter of the population being aged 65 and over by 2045.5 We therefore need to reconsider how we deliver better and more cost-effective housing to cater for parents, grandparents and great grandparents in a more suitable and sustainable way. Using land innovatively perhaps isn’t the single silver bullet, but being innovative in how we solve the problem over the long term is. The challenge is to encourage a wide range of potential investors, developers and registered providers to work with statutory bodies to identify solutions to the delivery of extra care housing, retirement villages and supported accommodation throughout the UK. This sharing of information will inform the development of options for using the potential supplier market to help finalise a national commissioning strategy. As our understanding of treatment and medical science continues to increase, there needs to be a leap in the way in which we provide good quality care and facilities. We must always remember that care must be person centred. Alongside this, we need to understand what is currently available. Only then can we formulate clear


strategies on how this need could be met. Responding to the need to treat and house a growing older population is as much of a challenge as it is an opportunity to ensure that this group can continue to enjoy a high standard of living while remaining active in and contributing to the wider society.
