Health and Wellbeing Innovation Commission Inquiry: Retirement Communities and Care Homes

Retirement Communities and Care Homes

Notwithstanding the significant importance many older people place on
staying in their family homes, the focus in this inquiry has been on the
alternative destinations to private family homes: primarily, specialist
housing with ageing in mind as well as residential care settings.

This report sets out examples of effective innovation in the area of
retirement communities and care homes, opportunities and barriers to
further innovation, and recommendations.
