Inquiry into better housing for older people

Age UK has published the findings of an inquiry to understand the detrimental impact of poor housing on older people's physical, mental and social wellbeing.

It puts the cost to the NHS of poor housing at an estimated £1.4 billion a year. The report contains 13 recommendations that look at the impact of poor quality, inaccessible housing on health, issues in supported housing and the private rented sector, and the importance of home improvement agencies.
