PHL issues report on Social & Economic Impact of Extra Care Housing

The debate around the delivery of care services and suitable accommodation for elderly and vulnerable residents across England is extremely prescient. The current “Cost of Living Crisis”, Covid 19, the War in Ukraine and long term under investment in social housing and care services, combined with an ageing and longer living population, continue to put public and private stakeholders under considerable stress. We see media reports describing “unfit for purpose” housing, preventable early deaths, patients remaining in hospital beds when they could be at home and long ambulance queues waiting to deliver emergency patients to hospital for urgent care.

In addition to real financial savings and investment within the local and wider economy, the delivery of modern, bespoke Extra Care Housing (‘ECH’), aligned to properly assessed care packages, can generate significant benefits for residents, their families, the nursing and care professionals looking after them and help address these important issues of today.
