Breaking the mould: re-visioning older people’s housing

The report describes a number of the business opportunities that an ageing population brings, particularly in the wider community. It also offers examples of how care, support and other practical services such as handyperson or 'help at home' services can be offered to all older people in all types of tenure, including people who would pay for such a service from a trusted provider.
