Rapid growth in numbers of older people in Ireland (North and South) requires informed planning for long-term care, both residential and in the community. 

This project brings together researchers from Trinity College Dublin and Queen’s University Belfast with Age Action to draw on existing data sources in Ireland (North and South) to construct a predictive model for long term care needs. 

This model will be developed into a tool which policy makers can use to help better plan for future care needs of older people.
