The number of elderly in Sweden is increasing due to improved living conditions and better medical care. It is important that society adapts to the increase and begins to work preventively to reduce the costs of the increase. An important aspect is the elderly accommodation, the cost of health care in specific accommodation is almost twice as high as those for ordinary housing. Therefore, it is important that we availability adapt dwelling to allow older people to live in ordinary housing for as long as they wish, instead of moving to assisted living before they need it. If we can fulfil the elder’s needs with home care instead, society can save a lot of money.
In this report, three different forms of housing has undergone accessibility increases and been inventoried and analysed. The result shows especially on major shortcomings in the real estate and site level. Many simple and inexpensive actions could be done to improve the sense of security and the availability.
