COUNCILLORS will discuss a five-year plan to improve housing choices for older people in Calderdale.
Members of the council’s Cabinet committee will meet tomorrow to discuss the proposals
after a report revealed the number of older people in Calderdale is expected to rise significantly over the next decade.
This will put pressure on health, social care and housing services.
There has been extensive consultation with older people and their views have been incorporated into strategy.
The strategy outlines a number of key aims:
Adequate support for older people to live independently in their own homes for as long as possible
A range of good-quality, appropriate and affordable housing available across all tenures to meet changing needs
Improved working relationships between all those involved with older people to promote healthy ageing and improve the overall quality of life of older people.
Councillors will be asked to approve the strategy and to allow the Older People’s Partnership Delivery Group to monitor performance.
