A study conducted by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers suggests that the creation of modified “smart” homes for the elderly could save the NHS and councils £2.5 billion. The study suggests that 78,000 adapted homes will be required during the coming decade, with lead author Dr Helen Meese noting: “Homes built with older people in mind, as well as retrofit technology for existing housing stock, could not only allow people to live in their homes for longer, but also massively reduce costs for the NHS and social care system.”
