What determines an older person’s move into sheltered accommodation and residential care?

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Poster)

The UK’s population is ageing, and understanding the dynamics of living arrangements in later life and the implications for the provision and funding of appropriate housing and long-term care is critical given the current economic climate which can have an adverse impact on state support for older people. This paper investigates the dynamics of living arrangements amongst people aged 65 years old and over between 1991 and 2008, focussing on the two key housing and care pathways in later life: moving into sheltered accommodation and moving into residential care. The empirical research examines the rates of moving into sheltered accommodation and institutional care and investigates the determinants and probabilities of these transitions in the UK. The paper employs all 18 waves of the British Household Panel Survey data (1991-2008) and uses a discrete-time logistic regression model in order to model the probability of entering sheltered accommodation and residential care. After reading this poster, participants will be able to associate specific factors with each of the two transitions in later life. For example age, health and marital status are significant determinants of a move into residential care, while the move into sheltered accommodation is also associated with housing tenure and education. After reading this poster, participants will be able to discuss the prevalence of each the two kinds of transition at different stages of the latter part of the life course, and to understand the crucial implications for the design of social care provision for older people in the future.
