In Northern Ireland the proportion of older people aged 65 or over is projected to rise from 15.9% to 24.8% over the period to 2041. The sharpest increase will be in the number of people aged 85 or over. Northern Ireland also has high levels of reported disability, particularly in the over 75 age bands.
Our Older People Housing Policy Review Action Plan 2008-10 was developed after consultation on the main housing and housing related issues for older people in Northern Ireland.
