Not just building houses

By simply building more adaptive homes or bungalows in isolation, it will not really create an answer to an issue that has become a bigger killer than obesity and that is social isolation. Research has identified a wide range of indicators of social isolation in older adults which poses significant health risks, these include living alone, having a small social network, infrequent participation in social activities and feelings of loneliness. One part of the LIFEstyle by EQUANS solution is to provide easy access to a safe space where social interaction with the wider community can be enabled. A further part of the solution is providing specialist staff who can work on developing activities and interaction for different types of people.
