Motion text

That this House welcomes the launch of On the Cusp?, a new brochure produced by the national charity Care and Repair England (CaRE) highlighting the critical role of housing in the provision of care; notes the causal link between housing conditions and a wide range of common chronic health conditions; further notes the age group most likely to live in poor housing is low income older people over 75; acknowledges the impact of housing on the risk of injury and accidents particularly among older people; believes that enabling older people to live healthier and more independent lives is dependent on the provision of decent, suitable homes; and calls on the Government to address the concerns raised by CaRE by making the connection between population ageing, health and social care policy and the need for appropriate housing.
