Widening Choices for Older People with High Support Needs

Posted: 15/01/13

This study examines the experiences of older people with high support needs involved in support based on mutuality and reciprocity.

Widening Choices for Older People with High Support Needs

Older people with high support needs want greater choice and control over their life and a wider range of options. This study identifies the benefits and potential of options based on mutuality (people supporting each other) and / or reciprocity (people contributing to individual and group well-being). Formal (e.g. Shared Lives, Homeshare, Time Banks) and informal (e.g. mutually supportive relationships) models and arrangements can be found throughout the UK, but they usually operate under the radar of public sector commissioners and on a very small scale.

The full report please can be found to the right of this page.
