Cross faculty research has taken place within the School of Architecture and the Lincoln Business School to research the role of housing in well-being for older adults. The research has been driven by the projected high increase in households that will be occupied by older adults within Lincolnshire. The main research aim is to develop a holistic approach to decision making that facilitates well-being in its widest context in present and future housing planning within Lincolnshire. Most specifically how the structures of older people’s housing and support mechanisms should be envisioned to promote independence, choice and control, health and social engagement. The premise of the research is to look at ageing not as a liability or stereotype, but rather as an asset and potential for businesses, the community and the individual. The research has undertaken an initial scoping exercise to determine the key issues engaging key stakeholders from a range of organisations within the public and third sector and representatives from housing and older adult organisations.
