Research Projects

This new research repository from the Housing and Care for Older People Research Network, has been created to allow those working in academia, as well as industry, to discover, retrieve and share publications and research project findings, and provide a platform for further knowledge and information exchange across learning communities. It accords with the Housing LIN's 'learning lab' ethos.

This is the place where housing and care research projects and/or findings submitted will be showcased. We are currently collating information received from academic bodies and industry partners so that we can populate this page.

Housing and Adult Social Care Scoping Review

As the NIHR School for Social Care Research approached the completion of its first five years of operation, it commissioned a scoping review of the evidence on housing and adult social care published in the UK over the last 10 years from 2003. Evidence covered: housing and prevention of the need for adult social care; housing and delaying the need for adult social care; alignment of housing with the integration of health and adult social care; and cost and cost-effectiveness studies. The review revealed some good evidence about the role of a number of housing interventions, such as housing with care for older people, aids and adaptations, and handyperson services in preventing and/or enabling people to live independently in their own homes.
