Older People's Accommodation and Wider Service Needs Assessment 2010

Older People's Accommodation and Wider Service Needs Assessment 2010 reports on the evidence gathered as part of a joint initiative between Eden District and South Lakeland District Councils to look accommodation and wider service needs of older people in a joint initiative. The two districts are neighbouring authorities with demographic and geographical similarities, which work closely in many areas including strategic housing. The project was a response to the increasing elderly population projections for these two districts and aimed to identify the key issues, possible solutions and policy responses, particularly where accessibility is a major issue due to the rural nature of these areas.

The project aims to carry out a robust assessment of the likely future requirements for housing and services for the elderly in Eden and South Lakeland District Council areas such as extra care schemes. While the Project falls within the districts housing remit and focused specifically on housing issues (namely bricks and mortar provision) it was necessary to also consider the wider service provision that will be required to maintain people in their existing home.
