APPG launches new Inquiry

The  All Party Parliamentary Group on Housing and Care for Older People, chaired by Lord Best, has launched a new Inquiry today to take a deep dive into housing and dementia. Sponsored by Anchor Hanover and the Housing LIN's Jeremy Porteus as the Secretariat, Lord Best has brought together a panel of Parliamentarians and experts to seek evidence covering:

  • the links between housing, health and social care to improve the journey of people affected by dementia;
  • the design of new homes;
  • ways to increase supply of specialist dementia-friendly properties;
  • changes and adaptations to existing properties to enable people to live well with dementia at home; and
  • the role of innovative technology to improve the delivery of better care and support.

The Inquiry will interview a wide range of 'witnesses' over four virtual sessions in 2020 and report back in early 2021. For more information, see the press release below and visit the Inquiry page on the Housing LIN's housing and dementia curated website.
