Knowledge and learning exchange workshop 2015


Advantages and disadvantages of different models of Housing with Care schemes for people living with dementia.


One of the outcomes of the 2014 HDRC workshop was a list of the consortium’s priority research themes. The top priority theme was: the advantages and disadvantages of different models of Housing with Care schemes for people living with dementia. Research evidence on this theme is currently limited.

In this 2015 workshop we aim to share knowledge and learning and increase understanding relating to this theme. Key priorities for the workshop are the sharing and understanding of the outcomes of different scheme models from around the world for people living with dementia and the development of a set of pros and cons for different models, based on the participants’ experience and observation. The output from the workshop would then form the basis of a proposal for a research project to explore the theme more extensively.
