New Housing LIN Viewpoints discuss extra care housing for people with dementia

Housing LIN Viewpoints 91-93 are a series of linked viewpoints by Dr Katey Twyford based on a Doctoral Research Study. The viewpoints concern extra care housing for people with dementia and look at how provision can be improved.

The first viewpoint (no 91) discusses when extra care housing is an appropriate choice for someone with dementia, and what factors might trigger someone living with dementia in extra care housing to move out.

The second viewpoint (no 92) considers an extra care scheme as a social world and how the different social groups in extra care housing can help or hinder someone living well in extra care housing.

The third and final viewpoint (no 93) reviews how extra care housing operators can approach quality management to keep residents and tenants at the heart of their service within a complex regulatory environment.
