Abstract

Ageing in place is the term now used to describe a person living in the home of their choice as they age.
The act of ageing in place takes place during a period of time in an elderly person’s life where they can have the things that they need in their daily life while maintaining their quality of life.
This Building capacity of community housing providers to support older tenants to age in place toolkit has been developed to give community housing providers a resource specifically designed to help them work with older tenants so they are able to provide effective housing services to tenants as they age in place.

The development of the toolkit has been a joint project of CHIA NSW and Uniting and is an example of the way that partnerships across jurisdictions can help to build capacity for both the community housing and aged care sectors and strengthen opportunities for collaboration.

CHIA NSW would like to acknowledge the funds provided by the NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) and the Aboriginal Housing Office (AHO) to help develop this resource under the NSW Community Housing Industry Development Strategy. The NSW Community Housing Industry Development Strategy is a partnership between CHIA NSW and DCJ.
