The resilience of older people is closely linked with their homes and living environments. In the UK around 33,500 people live in almshouses, which are low-cost housing dwellings managed as a charitable trust. Most almshouse residents are older adults.
In this online event, Dr Niamh Murtagh and members of the DMT-funded Almshouse Resilient Communities (ARC) for the Future project team will explore how the built environment can adapt and contribute to community resilience in the face of changes like the climate crisis. They will present initial findings from the project and examine how insights from the almshouse housing model can be applied to older people.
