The report’s findings are divided into five themes of:
- social interaction
- connecting with the wider community
- safety net
- scale, and
- thinking ahead.
Each of these includes case studies of the facilities and initiatives
visited and identifies the main learning points for the UK.
In conclusion the research demonstrates that there is a range of
different forms of ‘housing with care’ which either avoid or delay the
need for long term institutional care. There is some evidence of better
outcomes for residents, and many of the facilities are cost-effective
and could be replicated in the UK.
