Project Details


As the UK population ages, the number of older people living on their own and requiring formal care is increasing. While these demographic changes have significant implications for adult social care policy and practice they also draw attention to the pressing need for sufficient and appropriate housing that enables older people to live independently.

Not surprisingly, the provision of extra care housing has become a key element of government policy. Extra care housing provides opportunities for older people to maintain independence while at the same time receiving social care, if required. Using a longitudinal approach this project will explore how care is negotiated and delivered within extra care housing schemes.

The project is a joint venture with colleagues at the Association for Dementia Studies - University of Worcester, Personal Social Services Research Unit - University of Kent and the Housing Learning and Improvement Network.
