Better life for older people with high support needs: the role of social care

This briefing summarises the seven challenges set out by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s (JRF) A Better Life programme which will help older people with high support needs achieve a better quality of life. It identifies key SCIE resources that will support people working in social care address each of the challenges in their practice and relationships with older people with high support needs and achieve the overall aim of supporting choice, control and quality in their lives. The challenges cover: encouraging positive images of ageing; taking a person centred approach to care; encouraging importance of meaningful relationships; treating older people as equal stakeholders in their care and support services; allowing older people with high support needs to make decisions; and being open to innovative and new approaches of providing care and support.

Co-production and participation: older people with high support needs

Part of Co-production

This briefing summarises a review of literature and a small-scale survey of good practice on the participation and co-production of older people with high support needs. It looks at the benefits and barriers to participation; highlights two research programmes involving older people with high support needs. Recommendations for improved practice are also listed. It is noted that the evidence base for the review was limited as relevant material was either about participation as it relates generally to older people or was about older people with high support needs but contained very little reference to participation.
