Abstract

An edited version of the 2010 Care and Support in Housing with Care for Older People Technical Brief, retaining the original sections on commissioning care and support in extra care housing, legal relationships, care delivery and how much care provision is required. These remain relevant although some source documents have been superseded and terminology changed. This brief forms part of a set of three documents providing information on care and support in housing with care for older people. The other two in the set are: the newly published Care and Support in Housing with Care for Older People Policy Technical Brief; and the case study report Approaches to the Procurement and Delivery of Care and Support in Housing with Care.
