New case studies that integrate health, care and housing to support older people at home

With support from the Quality of Life Charitable Trust, Care & Repair England has published case studies identifying work that prevents hospital admission and delayed transfers of care, reduces the risk of admission to residential care and extends independent living and wellbeing for older people at home and their carers.

The case studies are:

  • Age UK Nottingham & Nottinghamshire Silverlink’s housing options information and advice service in GP services and hospitals
  • Age UK Warwickshire Housing Advice and Information Service, working with local GPs
  • Homewise Memory Matters support for people with dementia at home
  • West of England Care & Repair reducing delayed transfer of care through housing interventions
