Integrating Housing with Health and Social Care

The report shows that integrating housing with health and social care can improve the lives of vulnerable and older people and save thousands of pounds in health and care costs.
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.
