Cambridgeshire’s older peoples strategy
You can find Cambridgeshire’s Older People Strategy here.
Older people’s housing, care and support needs in Greater Cambridge 2017-2036
The recommendations are intended to stimulate discussion at a local level about how best to meet the requirements of an ageing population. The research shows that the future needs of older people can be met in different ways, and that local authorities and their partners should try to understand the relationship between different services and forms of accommodation to define local priorities and strategies for action.
The final report from the research Older people’s housing, care and support needs in Greater Cambridge 2017-2036 is available to download here.
The Housing for Older People Supply Recommendations tool is available using this link HOPSR-tool. Upon opening the file, please ‘enable macros’ and select one of the four options in the boxes.
