There were 10 Knowledge and Innovation Exchange Sessions at the Housing LIN annual conference on 8 December 2011:
1 - MAKING THE FINANCIAL CASE FOR EXTRA CARE HOUSING
David Sinclair & Dylan Kneale, International Longevity Centre-UK
Using longitudinal data from 3 providers ILC-UK have undertaken a review which explores the characteristics of residents, the notion of extra care housing as a home for life, the health outcomes of residents, and patterns of health service usage of residents. In this session, we present the findings of this work. We then review the reaction to this work from policy-makers and providers as well as opening the debate to discuss the next steps needed in terms of research and action.

2 - A BETTER LIFE IN HOUSING WITH CARE
Ilona Haslewood & Jenny Pannell, Joseph Rowntree Foundation
Housing with Care promises older people independence, facilities, activities, and flexible care and support. To deliver quality services, different organisations need to work together, yet roles and responsibilities can be unclear or contested. This interactive session will consider what works and what doesn't - for residents and their families, and for organisations and their staff.
3 - PAYING FOR CARE IN LATER LIFE
John Payne, ExtraCare Charitable Trust
From research undertaken by the Extracare Charitable Trust we know that over 80% of older people are worried about the future if they should need residential or nursing care and how they would pay for it. More worryingly, only 20% say that they have a way to fund those costs! The session will give an overview of the key issues and explore an innovative approach by the ExtraCare Charitable Trust - Care for life, which seeks to use housing equity to pay for care costs.

Alan Lewis & Sarah Buchanan EVOLVE / Thomas Pocklington Trust

8 - GETTING TO GRIPS WITH INTERGRATION
Dr Nick Goodwin, Kings Fund & Caroline Hawkings, NHF
This session will examine what is meant by the term 'integrated care', current evidence and policy directions, and discuss why it is essential as a design principle for the future of health and social care provision. It will examine ways in which housing has and will need to work with key partners to deliver it.
