Older: Digital inclusion
Digital inclusion and older people by Rebecca Mollart For many of us now who work, new technologies are part and parcel of every day life. At home too increasing numbers of us use the internet and email to manage and enhance our lives. Those of us who have not grown up with technology can feel excluded as more and more information is communicated in this way. There are currently about around 10 million people in the UK who are unable to access onlin...
Older: Residents views
A resident?s views on sheltered housing by Jerry Best Sheltered housing provides a secure environment for the over 60?s.  A scheme manager is on site Monday to Friday, who makes a morning call to residents, to make sure all is well with them.  In the evenings and weekend-ends a call centre provides emergency cover, as all flats have emergency pull cords in all rooms; residents feel safe and secure in the knowledge that if they do need assi...

Who should pay for preventative care? by Peter Lloyd Paying for old age We are living longer; the years spent in ?retirement? increase; so do the risks of costly dependency in one?s later years.  How can we ensure the income and support needed to maintain a good quality of life?

This preventative care is largely provided by: ?&n...;

It focuses on sheltered housing good practice and awareness. A pre-strategy document issued by the Department for Communities and Local ...
Older: Home for life

Sheltered housing: a home for life? by Peter Lloyd

A couple of decades ago, sheltered housing was often viewed as a staging pool.  One moved in when one could no longer cope in one?s own home.  Subsequently, as health deteriorated, one moved on to residential and nursing care, to the geriatric ward and finally the grave.  The thought of such a progression must have terrified most older people.  But today, it is said, we have more choice.  Go...

Older: Aiming higher
Aiming higher: raising skills and aspirations among staff in housing with support by Steve McCann

The housing sector workforce development plan (2002) estimated that between 650,000 ? 1,000,000 people worked or volunteered in housing and around 150,000 worked for local authorities and registered social landlords (RSLs). A fair proportion of these people will be involved in providing some form of housing with support and probably seeking some f...
