Edinburgh's plan for older people

A City for All Ages

Older people, the Council, NHS Lothian and other partners in the public, voluntary and private sectors worked together to write Edinburgh's Plan for Older People.

The plan aims to

  • make Edinburgh a place where older people can live positive, worthwhile lives
  • ensure that the city considers older people in all its services and functions
  • enable older people to remain in their own homes for as long as possible with a good quality of life
  • ensure the welfare and social life of those living in nursing and residential homes.
