The Mayhew Review – Future-proofing retirement living: Easing the care and housing crises

Year of publication

Our report The Mayhew Review: Future Proofing Retirement Living – Easing the care and housing crises, published today and supported by ARCO, finds that the Government must build 50,000 new homes for older people each year to tackle the UK’s housing and social care crisis.

Professor Les Mayhew’s research shows that with the number of over-65s set to race past 17 million by 2040, the Government should initiate an accelerated programme of constructing older people’s housing with up to 50,000 new units a year, on top of the meagre 7,000 currently built annually. This means that one in four of new homes should be targeted at older people.

Achieving this growth would help older people stay healthy for longer and reduce the burden on the NHS and care homes. Each new home would free up housing and surplus bedrooms for younger families and first-time buyers, making housing more affordable. And new developments could play a major part in revitalising declining high streets.
