Remodelling sheltered housing and residential care homes to extra care housing

The AAG WA invites you to an exciting seminar featuring Anthea Tinker, a leading Social Gerontologist from King’s College in London.

The seminar will present research on extra care housing in the UK, which is a form of housing that allows older people to live in a home of their own, that is grouped with others and has a range of facilities and supports designed to meet their growing needs.

The research explores options for creating extra care housing utilising existing sheltered housing and residential care homes. It provides insight into how a sample of providers remodelled these schemes, what the architectural and engineering problems were, what the experience was like for tenants, and how these schemes worked in practice.

Lessons will be drawn about architectural aspects, accessibility and assistive technology as well as costings.
