Providing an alternative pathway

The value of integrating housing, care and support.

8 January 2013

This report, aimed at local commissioners of health and social care, tells the real stories of five people who receive integrated care, housing and support.

Each service shows local authorities, housing providers, GPs and acute trusts working together to provide an alternative care pathway which reduces the demand an individual has for other services, as well as improving their quality of life.

It follows the Federation’s earlier report, On the Pulse, about housing routes to better health outcomes for older people.
