Results of a survey of English care homes and integrated working practices.
The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Housing and Care for Older People launched an Inquiry in May 2012 to consider progress towards the adoption of the recommendations and the design criteria set out in a progressive report, Housing our Ageing Population: Panel for Innovation (HAPPI), published in December 2009.
This At a glance briefing gives a summary of a review of literature and a small-scale survey of good practice on the participation and co-production of older people with high support needs. The report brings together the most recent and relevant research findings and development initiatives and identifies barriers to the participation of older people with high support needs and some solutions. It also identifies effective practice initiatives for increasing the participation of older people with high support needs, as well as new approaches to involve older people with high support needs.
This is a summary of research literature on the participation and co-production of older people with high support needs. Benefits and barriers are identified and practice examples are listed. The report will be of particular interest to commissioners of social and health care services. It will also be useful for people working in housing provision and service users and others developing the co-production/participation agenda in care provision and service development. Resource published by Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) in October 2012. Review date in October 2015.

Many European countries, including the UK, are now facing the dual challenge of responding to the demographic changes brought by population ageing, while also implementing tough austerity measures following the 2008 financial and economic crisis.
With increasing pressure on public budgets, this is an important moment to consider what it is that makes a country a good place to grow old, and where possible to learn lessons from our European neighbours on the policies and services that are most effective in giving older people a good quality of life.
