As the older demographic of the population continues to grow, with increasing expectations of quality of lifestyle, the UK faces a severe shortage of suitable housing for the elderly. 33% of those aged over 65 would consider down-sizing, but only 7% actually did because of the lack of appropriate alternatives*.
There is a demand for modern, age-adjusted properties that enable residents to enjoy a fulfilling lifestyle that promotes independence.

Octopus Healthcare is actively investing in this space, leveraging our in-house Development Team to create a proprietary pipeline of opportunities for growth.
