Quality healthcare at home can help you remain independent for longer. This can be especially beneficial in places like Colchester, one of the UK’s fastest growing towns. In 2015, there were approximately 31,550 over 65s living in Colchester. With more affordable housing and a calmer, quieter lifestyle on offer, it’s easy to see why so many older people are drawn to this historic town. However, as with the rest of the UK, the number of individuals aged 65 and over is set to increase rapidly in the near future, with the population being estimated to reach 40,800 by 2024.
