Housing Choices for Older People in Ireland - Time for Action

The goal of this report is to drive discussion and offer solutions which provide choice in housing for older people in Ireland. We believe that there is scope for a greater focus on housing provision for older people in Rebuilding Ireland, Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness and at a local level in local authority housing strategies. The report explores the various housing options that a ‘spectrum of housing’ for older people should include. It outlines the demand and the supply needed of the options currently available, the future demand for these options, and the investment that should be put in place under the Government’s Housing Plan over the next 10 years.
