Good Girl - I don't know anything about the 90 year old couple, but if they're people you know, find a source of proper advice for them because having savings doesn't remove the council's statutory duty to house vulnerable people.  Even without that, at 90 it would probably be hard to find anyone who'd get enough points to get to the top of any housing association list faster.
(I'm an obsessive problem-solver, so feel free to ignore any suggestions or solutions I offer, even if they sound terribly insistent.)

In my LA there is no shortage of accommodation for people over the age of 55 for either independent flats or part one and a half care flats. There are thousands of families awaiting houses though.
