Housing in later life

NHS Evidence - health management - Thu, 04/09/2014 - 12:34

Age UK -
This analysis finds that unsuitable housing is leaving thousands of older people facing unnecessary delays in being discharged from hospital. Official figures show that patients who need home adaptations, such as grab rails or ramps fitted at home, are having to wait for an extra 27 days on average– more than 40,000 days in total – costing an estimated £11.2 million per year in delayed discharges. This report calls on the Government to ensure that all new homes are built to the lifetime homes standard so they can be easily adapted as people age.

These include enshrining a broader, more accurate definition of ‘housing with care’ throughout government policy; greater co-location of care settings with other community services such as colleges; the expansion of CQC’s role in inspecting commissioning practices; and promoting excellence in the profession through the introduction of a license to practice and a living wage. The Commission concludes that these measures, among others, could help build a housing with care sector fit for the twenty-first century.

A new settlement for health and social care

NHS Evidence - health management - Thu, 04/09/2014 - 10:46

Commission on the Future of Health and Social Care in England -
This is the final report from the independent Commission on the Future of Health and Social Care in England. In it, the commission discusses the need for a new settlement for health and social care to provide a simpler pathway through the current maze of entitlements. The commission, chaired by Kate Barker, proposes a new approach that redesigns care around individual needs regardless of diagnosis, with a graduated increase in support as needs rise, particularly towards the end of life. The commission has concluded that this vision for a health and care system fit for the 21st century is affordable and sustainable if a phased approach is taken and hard choices are taken about taxation.
