Older people with high support needs in housing with care

28 May 2013

Key messages from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation

JRF has published a roundup of the key evidence from its Housing with Care research programme. Find the report on the JRF website

The roundup, by independent specialist Sue Garwood, illustrates how housing with care offers a promising model for improving the quality of life of older people with high support needs, but also poses challenges. In addition, it looks at what needs to happen to enable older people with high support needs to live a better life in housing with care.

It covers key messages and practice examples from JRF studies into three aspects of housing with care:

  • promoting supportive and positive relationships
  • boundaries of roles and responsibilities
  • affordability, choices and quality of life

These publications are part of JRF’s Better Life research programme
