Age UK's report, titled 'Health and Care of Older People in England 2017,' says that the provision of this social care - including occupational therapy services - for these age groups would dramatically improve their lives.
It identifies that since 2010, the number of people needing social care provision in their own homes has increased by 48 percent, with a 17.9 percent rise during the last 12 months alone.
Consequently, approximately one eighth of over-65s are living with unmet needs - a situation which has been worsened by the government's austerity policies.
The charity is imploring chancellor Philip Hammond to provide more funding for occupational therapists and other social care professionals in his spring Budget speech on March 8th.
Age UK go on to say that this funding would be necessary the 'complete collapse' of the social care system that would would occur if the current situation does not change.
In response to the report, director of professional operations at the College of Occupational Therapists Julia Skelton said: "If the government is truly serious about preventing frail older people being admitted to hospital, helping them to remain living in their own homes and maintaining their dignity, additional investment is needed now to support those who need help with basic daily living tasks.
"These are exactly the sorts of things that occupational therapists and their teams do day in, day out, yet we have seen increasing numbers of occupational therapy posts cut.
"This report lays bare the shocking impact of financial cuts for thousands of vulnerable older people across the country."
