Housing for older people globally: What are the best practices? An ILC Global Alliance e-dialogue

Posted on

The discussion paper below collates the findings of 10 ILCs within the ILC Global Alliance on the subject of housing for older people. Coordinated by Monica Ferreira, Co-President of the ILC Global Alliance and President of ILC-South Africa, the research was commissioned to analyse the different policies used globally to provide housing for older people and to illicit best practice examples. The paper intends to begin filling in the gaps of knowledge and sparking debate on the subject of shelter for older people.

Readers are invited to participate in a dialogue on gaps in the discussion paper and in housing provision for this population in general – including views on what constitutes best practice.

  1. I am Secretary of the above association – non profit and the only independent assn in Queensland Australia that is not funded by Government or grants. We are volunteers.

    We are an advocacy body that advocates for the rights of residents of over 50′s Parks, lifestyle resorts, which come under the Manufactured Homes act which has draconian legislation controlled by the Owners of these Parks.

    Many of our residents are under extreme stress with no recourse to assistance as QCAT tribunal does not assist in fact it is biased.

    We need recognition in this Industry and will be attending the forum today in Brisbane with Dr Kalache. Please we would appreciate a separate classification in your above page that includes Over 50′s, lifestyle resorts, villages, mixed parks – there are many in Australia and we have thousands of members of arpq. They are separate to retirement villages, as they come under a completely separate act.
    Most of our resident home-owners are elderly pensioners but the classification is over 50 which has no legal standing. Some are under extreme stress financially owing to increasing fees and bullying.

    We need recognition.
