Home not Hospital

In March 2017, the Improvement Hub held a learning event showcasing examples from across Scotland of housing organisations working with partners in health and social care to avoid people having to go into – or to stay in – hospital.  Presentations below

What can housing do? 

Amanda Britain & Simon Carr, The Improvement Hub

 

Housing’s contribution to reducing the need for admission to hospital and reducing delays in discharge, with a description of a pilot to use sheltered housing as interim supported accommodation.

There’s no place like Home: the Aberdeen experience 

Dorothy Askew, Planning and Development Manager, Aberdeen City Health & Social Care Partnership

 

Shirley Finlayson, Manager, Disabled Persons Housing Service (DPHS) Aberdeen

 

The rising trends in the number of people delayed in hospital waiting for specialist housing presents challenges.  Whilst these are not high in numbers, the length of delay, often 6 weeks plus, can result in a high number of bed-days lost.  Aberdeen’s Health and Social Care Partnership have significantly reduced the number of patients delayed by housing issues and delivered better outcomes for service users by improved communication, joint working, telecare and a range of specialist housing options.

Fit Homes 

Lucy Fraser, Head of Innovation, Albyn Housing Society Ltd,

Arlene Johnstone, Complex Case Planning Manager, NHS Highland

 

Albyn Housing Society Ltd and NHS Highland are working with Carbon Dynamic, an off-site modular developer bringing disruptive innovation to the housing and health sector by developing a completely new breed of “connected” and adaptable housing.  Their goal is to enable people to stay at home, without the need for lengthy admission to hospital or the need to move to a care home.

‘GP Beds’ – new uses of extra care housing in Moray 

Jane Mackie, Moray Health & Social Care Partnership

Stephen McCullough, Hanover Housing Association 

 

Hospital services are under increasing pressure and there continues to be national concern at the number of people delayed in hospital.  But are there ways that we can avoid the need for people to be admitted to hospital in the first place?  A new initiative in Moray shows ways that extra care housing can be used that are based on a partnership between Moray Health & Social Care Partnership, Hanover Housing Association and local GPs.

The 500+ - how can housing help more people with complex needs have a home? (1)

Jane Gray, Ark Housing Association

 

National statistics show that there are more than 500 people who are in effect ‘living’ in hospital.  How many of these people could live better quality lives in their own home in the community?  How can housing organisations and Health & Social Care Partnerships work together more effectively to prevent the issues arising?  Work is underway in Edinburgh and Forth Valley to develop new pathways for people with complex needs placing housing as a key partner.
