Abstract

The report sets out how integrated housing and care information and advice services enable local authorities to meet their new duties under the Care Act and includes model clauses to assist with service commissioning. Endorsed by ADASS (the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services), it will be particularly useful for the planners, commissioners and providers of care, health or housing services for older people. Making the Case also shows how integrated information and advice provision meets specific NHS, Public Health and Social Care Outcomes Framework measures. It highlights not only the cost benefits but as importantly, the benefits to older people themselves.
