Average age of customers admitted to a residential care home (65+)

Monitoring

Higher age of entry into a residential home is a positive indicator as this means the Council is being effective in helping people stay in their own homes for longer. This measurement has fluctuated since its introduction in 2016, when the average age was 84 years.

Following a fall in September to 82.2 years, there has been an increase between September and December. The figure of 86.7 years for December is the highest since June 2016.
