Older People

A prestention regarding the 2006 Older Persons' Housing Needs Survey undertaken by Bolton Council and partners. This resource contains a vast amount of demographics and data on older people and housing including a geographical layout, housing type, housing support needs, future property plans etc. This resource will be of interest to anyone looking at older people and housing, as well as possible future care needs of vulnerable people. 

The toolkit explains how to best include assessments of loneliness prevalence and indicators in Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNAs) and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategies (JHWSs). It covers key research on the detrimental impact of loneliness on our health and offers a financial case for taking preventative active. It also demonstrates how loneliness relates to Adult Social Care and Public Health Outcomes Frameworks.

This short paper summarises a lecture given by Professor Keith Moultrie to a Community Exchange Seminar run by Oxford Brookes University and Oxfordshire Council for Voluntary Associations on 8 March 2012. The paper focuses on the social care of older people in England, and its purpose is to:
1. Explore the changing population demographics across the country.
2. Consider the potential implications for social care and related health and welfare services.
3. Consider the policy response to date and how it might develop further.

The Director of Public Health Annual Report for 2009/10 looks in details at the implications of an ever increasingly ageing population in Bolton. It examines the changing demographics in Bolton, how this will change the future health and social care needs of people living in Bolton, the predicted impact upon services, and how preventative services need to work in the future to tackle such issues.
