Paper that reviews the evidence on the cost effectiveness of preventative support services that assist older people with care and support needs to remain in their own homes.

The costs of these preventative support services are contrasted with the costs of specialist housing options, such as sheltered and extra care housing and also with the costs of health services, as part of reviewing the value for money of preventative support services (henceforth PSS).
