older people

Report that assessed the progress three years into the 10-year Scottish Government and Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) programme, Reshaping care for older people (RCOP). It is aimed at improving services for older people by shifting care towards anticipatory care and prevention.

A detailed outline of the theory of change, the indicators used and a summary of the evidence for the Practitioner Research and Older People research project.

This is because of the associated benefits for restoring physical health and psychological well-being. However, it tends to be a neglected dimension of current social care/intermediate care.
