New Housing and dementia practice framework

Launched on 30 October 2019, the new Housing and dementia: a practice framework for Scotland's housing sector was commissioned by Healthcare Improvement Scotland's ihub in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Housing Scotland and Alzheimer Scotland.

The ihub's Focus on Dementia and Place Home and Housing portfolios are both involved in this improvement initiative.

The framework includes:

  • five person-centred outcomes that people living with dementia and their carers have said are important to them, and
  • 11 commitments that housing organisations should already be achieving or working towards in order to meet the outcomes.

Housing organisations across Scotland are being invited to sign up to use the framework to help them identify where they are already working well and areas where more work needs to be done. It is designed to be flexible and adaptable.
