New housing sector practice guide launched to support people with dementia

Posted 07.11.17
Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH): Article link

A new practice guide has been launched to help housing practitioners offer suitable support to people affected by dementia.

The guide is one of the outputs from a larger research study on housing's role in dementia carried out for CIH Scotland by housing consultancy Arneil Johnston.

It provides recommendations covering four separate pathways, each representing one of four key stages in a typical dementia journey.

For each pathway, the guide considers the role of housing within that stage, provides examples of emerging practice from the sector and a checklist of what housing practitioners should know and do.

The guide makes practical recommendations for how housing practitioners in Scotland can make a real difference to people affected by dementia, their families and carers.
