Homes for our old age



CABE has recently published 10 case studies of housing schemes for older people, each of which offers inventive design and management solutions linking home and social care. The publication, 'Homes for our old age', also provides useful contextual information about age, poverty, dementia and isolation, and highlights the key issues facing commissioners and designers. Glasgow's Croftspar scheme, with its seven supported houses for people with dementia, is one of the featured case studies.
