Extra Care resources

At a House of Lords event hosted by Lord Best, three new resources on Extra Care housing and dementia have been published as part of the DemECH project, run by the University of Worcester’s Association for Dementia Studies.

Lord Best, chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) “Housing for people with dementia” inquiry, oversaw the release of three “Key Insight” booklets to guide future Extra Care housing development alongside video and audio diaries in which people with dementia share their experiences of Extra Care.

The booklets are intended for commissioners, health and care practitioners, and for people and families affected by dementia.  Links to the booklets available here: www.housinglin.org.uk/Topics/type/Dementia-in-Extra-Care-Housing-research-findings-launched
