This study will explore the linkages between housing conditions and older people’s health with a view to informing housing providers and policy makers of the key components of healthy homes. This proposal will involve stakeholder engagement, research and housing case studies in the Tallaght area to investigate the links between housing conditions and the health of older people, and the impact on TUH healthcare delivery. The overall findings will be used to support the TUH integrated care team by highlighting key housing related issues to improve the health of older people in their homes. This project will also be used to initiate a larger conversation and promote further research into housing conditions and TUH’s Integrated Care for Older Persons.
