Housing for Older People and People with Disabilities
The number of sheltered, very sheltered and medium dependency houses provided by local authorities has increased by 2% in the latest year from 20,315 homes in 2018 to 20,746 homes in 2019.
In addition to the housing for older people and people with disabilities provided by councils, councils provide or commission housing support services to help meet specific housing needs of older and other vulnerable people to give them the opportunity to continue to live in their own homes. Housing for people with variable needs is currently mainly classified as very sheltered, sheltered, medium dependency, wheelchair and ambulant disabled, although figures can vary from year to year as dwellings may be adapted to suit the particular needs of tenants, or re-classified by providers.
Chart 13: The provision of local authority housing for older people increased by 3% for very sheltered properties, 1% for sheltered properties and 4% for medium dependency properties in 2018-19

The Scottish House Condition Survey (SHCS) is the a national survey of housing and households undertaken in Scotland as part of the Scottish Household Survey. It combines both an interview with occupants and a physical inspection of dwellings to build up a picture of Scotland's occupied housing stock which covers all types of households and dwellings across the entire country - whether owned or rented, flats or houses. http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/SHCS
The Scottish Health Survey (SHeS) provides a detailed picture of the health of the Scottish population in private households and is designed to make a major contribution to the monitoring of health in Scotland. It is essential for the Scottish Government's forward planning, for identifying gaps in health services provision and for identifying which groups are at particular risk of future ill-health. http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Health/scottish-health-survey
