The charity had claimed that sheltered housing for older people was in crisis because increasing numbers of live-in wardens were being replaced by floating support teams.
In a report based on interviews with tenants and local authorities in England, Help the Aged estimated that 31% of sheltered housing schemes would lose on-site wardens over the next three years.
Nobody's Listening claimed that older people living in sheltered accommodation were being let down by a lack of consultation and that changes to services were being forced on them.
David Rogers, Chair of the Community Wellbeing Board at the Local Government Association, said: “Councils are faced with making some very difficult decisions, as those born during the baby boom reach old age. The use of technology and sharing of resources are both ways in which standards of care can be maintained.
Cllr Rogers said the number of over 65s was predicted to increase from 8.3 million to 11.4m by 2025 with a related increase in the number of people needing support because of conditions such as dementia.
"It is increasingly urgent that we address the issue of how the country will pay for the care of our ageing population," he added.
“Councils want to provide the services vulnerable people deserve, but the resources available are letting them down.
"There needs to be a thorough root and branch review of care for the elderly, including how it is provided, managed and funded. There is no point fiddling around at the edges when what is needed is a revolution in social care.”
