Double deficit: Older and ageing persons in the Irish private rental sector. A Threshold and Alone Report
ALONE and Threshold
This document is the report of a study into the housing experiences and pathways of older and ageing people renting in Ireland’s private rental sector (PRS). The study set out to capture the needs, aspirations, pathways and experiences of older and ageing people in the PRS and, in particular, to measure the impact of renting on the wellbeing of older tenants. It also sought to offer an assessment on the appropriateness of the PRS as a tenure option for those aged in excess of 55 years. In addition, an objective of the research was to identify recommendations for policy and legislation relevant to the sustainable and secure accommodation of older people.
