Living well in the future

As the number of older people in Derbyshire continues to rise, we need to make sure we have a range of accommodation and housing to help them live safely and independently for as long as possible.

Under the Care Act we have a duty to support the local care market and we want to ensure older and disabled people have a choice in how and where they live which is why we’ve worked with district and borough councils to develop a vision for how to do this up to 2035.

We will continue to work with local and private care providers and developers across Derbyshire to ensure we have the right numbers and type of accommodation for the medium and long term.

The strategy projects a diminishing need for residential care beds with more emphasis on creating community-based services, care-ready housing, Extra care or provide extra support to help older people remain independent at home for longer.

Our older people's housing, accommodation and support strategy is attached to this page.
