This publication draws together practical examples of ways of working from two reports: Boundaries of roles and responsibilities in housing with care and Affordability, choices and quality of life in housing with care.
It highlights ways of working in different housing with care schemes, drawing on the two studies and considering their implications in very practical terms. The practice guide is aimed at people managing frontline housing with care schemes, commissioners and senior managers in housing organisations, social services and health, and frontline staff, older people and their relatives. The practice guide:
- Identifies five key topics in housing with care which could benefit from improvement;
- Summarises what older people and their relatives say they value in housing with care; and
- Presents practical examples.
