Age, Home and Community: A Strategy for Housing for Scotland’s Older People: 2012 - 2021

With the twin challenges of an ageing population and reduced availability of public funding, we need to change the way we deliver services to focus on those which help support independent living and prevent or reduce the need for more intensive services. This will not only achieve what older people want, but will also help us to make the best use of our limited resources.

This strategy sets out our response to the global challenge of ageing.
