Cheshire West and Chester Council is urging residents to share their views on its draft strategy for ensuring everyone aged fifty-five and over can live safely and age well within their local communities and own homes.
The Council is undertaking a borough wide consultation to support the development of a new Accommodation and Support Strategy. The final strategy will make west Cheshire a place that can support older people by ensuring local accommodation meet the changing needs of an individual as they age and is flexible to adapt to changing physical conditions and health.

Its aims are to improve health, wellbeing and quality of life for older people, ensuring they can access their local community, live in suitable and adaptable accommodation with appropriate care and support, have a range of accommodation choices and get the right level of support at the right time and in the right way.

There are a number of ways that you can get involved and share your views.

The final strategy will be reviewed by the Council's Cabinet later in the year.
