On the Pulse - housing routes to better health outcomes for older people

This report by the National Housing federation, supported by the Housing LIN, contains case studies of housing providers supporting older people to leave hospital quickly, avoid admissions and stay home at the end of life. The links with NHS, public health and social care outcomes are shown as well as the contribution the services make to the Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) programme that sets standards for care. Estimated cost savings to health and social care are also shown.

Of particular relevance to 'End of Life Care' is the case study no4 - 'A good death: Home Group's end of life care'
