Abstract

This report explores the needs of people in later life, including expenditure, health, social networks, services, housing and neighbourhood, as well as income. The Government is currently planning and initiating policies for a future in which increasing numbers of older people, living longer, will require more resources.
This report uses existing data to examine the needs of people over 65. It investigates how patterns of resource use change over time, both for individual older people as they move through later life and for different generations of older people. The report will be of interest to policymakers, practitioners and academics involved in provision for people in later life.
