Living well, dying well - the importance of housing

This research paper by the University of Glasgow, made available by Hayward Group Ltd, publisher of the European Journal of Palliative Care.

It outlines the author’s vision for a new type of ‘care campus’ that would provide an environment in which older people, ranging from those able to live with complete independence to those with palliative care needs, would become part of the community of the Crichton Campus in Dumfries, Scotland.

The authors are looking develop the concept and work with partner to build on the campus. This paper provides useful information on how housing with care can be better placed to support people at end of life and suggests ways in which this might offer ‘a good death’.
