An emerging group of older South Australians (the majority of whom are women) are living in insecure private rental housing and outlaying rent that comprises unsustainably high portions of their incomes.  For many of these people, homeless is a real possibility.   There are many services in South Australia working hard to help this group of older people – however the approach remains fragmented.

The report Finding a Suitable Home for Older South Australians presents the latest detailed data on the scale and location of the problem. It also makes recommendations for strategies to help older people successfully age-in-place. Early intervention can saves lives and avoid enormous costs for crisis health and housing.

The full report undertaken by Dr Debbie Faulkner of the Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Planning (CHURP) in collaboration with Jeff Fiedler from Housing for the Aged Action Group’ available here.
