Need – not demand 1. Housing with care will be in greater demand, a long tail of lifestyle related illness combined with comorbidity, dementia, complex needs 2. This requires a mixed spectrum of provision to cater to different levels of need 3. ‘Residential care’ is conflated with ‘care home’ and as such is related to poor quality, risk of abuse, associated with frailty and loss of independence 4. “extra care” and other terminology distances itself from ‘residential care’ but this in fact represents a diverse spectrum of options – from care home to village settings, supported living, ‘green house’ etc, 5. Currently, people need housing with care, but do not demand it – is a change in terminology needed and to cut through confusion?
