extra care housing
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).
Evaluation of the Enhanced Housing Options Trailblazers programmes run by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) with support from the Department of Work and Pensions,
The programmes aim to develop innovative approaches to delivering housing options/advice services. They offer housing advice to people with low and medium housing need as well as those with acute need, and link housing and wider advice about a range of issues such as training and employment, financial management, and access to benefits.
This report is about defining the boundaries of roles and responsibilities in housing with care (HWC) to improve quality of life for residents. It was published by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation in October 2011.
The Enriched Opportunities Programme is an intervention developed by the ExtraCare Charitable Trust and Bradford Dementia group that aimed to improve the well-being and activity of people with dementia living in long-term care. The programme included five key elements: specialist expertise; individualised assessment and case work; activity and occupation; staff training; management and leadership. This research evaluates the impact of the intervention on residents and tenants and on the staff caring for them.
This literature review examines the evidence relating to people with dementia living in extra care housing, commissioned by the Housing and Dementia Research Consortium (HDRC) in November 2008. Key aims were to identify recent literature with a focus on evidence relating to the following: design and use of the built environment; facilities, furnishings and equipment; care, support and therapeutic services; organisation and management; outcomes in relation to health, wellbeing, policy and cost.
This document details the additional design criteria, social activities, care and support services to be provided in very sheltered housing schemes offering accommodation to older people living with dementia. Issues covered include personal care, medication, staffing, quality of life, involvement with the community, and building design.
The well-being of older people is an important issue for policy across health, housing and social care, and local authorities are increasingly considering extra care as a way of replacing older models of residential care provision and addressing low demand for traditional forms of sheltered housing. The researchers interviewed residents and managers from six extra care housing schemes in England to explore their experiences.
Launched in August 2006, the National Telecare Development Programme (TDP) aims to help more people in Scotland live at home for longer, with safety and security, by promoting the use of telecare in Scotland through the provision of a development fund and associated support. This report evaluates the impact of the first two years of operation.
This strategy sets out the Scottish Government’s expectations of further developments in telecare: telecare to contribute significantly to the achievement of personalised health and social care outcomes for individuals; telecare to contribute significantly to delivering wider national benefits in areas such as shifting the balance of care and the management of long-term health conditions; and local partnerships to mainstream telecare within local service planning.
