Living Well at Home [Report – UK] – July 2011

“The All Party Parliamentary Group on Housing and Care has produced a report from its Inquiry into ‘Living Well at Home’ . The report highlights the significant role played by the older person’s own home: a suitable place to live can mean independence for far longer; it can prevent the need for residential care; it can reduce requirements for care at home; it can mean fewer accidents and hospital admissions; and it can allow people to leave hospital much earlier, with less risk of immediate readmission.

Our report looks at the obstacles to getting assistance with basic home improvements, or domiciliary help unless care needs are absolutely critical. The report makes recommendations to overcome these difficulties and we hope it will stimulate greater interest in helping older people to live well for longer in their own homes.”
