Description:
This report presents the results of a study to investigate the role and future development of supportive housing for older people in Ireland. For purposes of the study, supportive housing was defined as group or sheltered housing schemes for older people where the residents have their own apartments or houses. The key feature is having one’s own home but within a purpose-built, clustered arrangement rather than individual homes dispersed throughout the community. Within this definition there is a continuum in the amount of support and care that is provided for residents. This focus on supportive housing as defined above is timely in view of the increasing policy attention being given to this area in Ireland, in particular to sheltered housing. High expectations are being placed on it in relation to meeting housing and care needs of older people and delivering on the policy objective of avoiding, or at least delaying, the necessity for older people to move to residential care because they can no longer live independently in their own homes.
