Leeds welfare bodies believe that a joint initiative has helped them to have a clearer idea of how to plan for the future needs of elderly people.
Research funded through the first joint venture between Leeds Jewish Housing Association, Jewish Welfare Board and Donisthorpe Hall is being used to plan for the provision of services.
Nearly 400 survey respondents answered questions relating to their age, gender and living patterns. Over 65 per cent of replies came from people over 70 who expressed concerns about health, finance and loneliness.
