Project Details

Description

ASSET is an independent research project commissioned and funded by the Department of Health’s NIHR School for Social Care Research. The project runs from February 2012 to April 2014 and is being led by the Association for Dementia Studies at Worcester University in partnership with the Personal Social Services Research Unit (PSSRU) at the University of Kent, the School for Policy Studies at the University of Bristol, Housing 21 and the Housing Learning and Improvement Network. The overall aim of this project is to explore how best to provide adult social care in housing with care schemes in England, in order to maximise quality of life for residents and make the best use of resources. The project has 4 main stages:
• A review of what is already known about adult social care and housing with care.
• An electronic survey of adult social care providers and housing with care organisations to identify what models of working are in use.
• In-depth case studies of housing with care schemes to explore in detail how they work with adult social care, the experiences of residents and relatives of receiving services, and the cost of different models of care.
• Communication of our findings to a wide range of audiences including residents and relatives, professionals working in social care, housing and health, and academic communities.
