There is a growing body of evidence about the role older people’s housing plays in tackling loneliness and social isolation but, to date, there has been a lack of practical guidance for providers and those who work with older people.
The new erosh guide, kindly supported by Kier, consolidates some of this evidence, highlights the positive role sheltered and retirement housing plays in reducing loneliness and social isolation, and includes good practice guidance for those who support older people who are, or at risk of, loneliness and social isolation.
The guide, produced in association with The Silver Line, is aimed specifically at supporting sheltered and retirement housing staff and is endorsed by our patron and founder of The Silver Line, Dame Esther Rantzen DBE.
