Nottinghamshire has an increasing population aged over 65. The health and wellbeing of older people and ensuring they have access to the right services to meet their needs is therefore becoming more challenging.
Insight provides information according to different age bands, sex and other variables to inform planning for future health care needs. Predictions also suggest there will be higher numbers of very old people aged 85+.
Key areas of health need which have been considered, include: dementia, falls and bone health, winter warmth and loneliness and social isolation.
