Abstract

Past housing policies and higher rates of home ownership among the elderly have meant that a larger proportion of the population has aged and lived with associated disability in their own homes up until now. They have been able to predominantly age in place, in their own homes, known neighbourhoods and with community ties in place. There is growing recognition of the advantages of enabling people with dementia to remain in a familiar environment.People with dementia, renting privately, are an important subsector of the aged community and require targeted housing support if they are to age in place.
