Being Home: Housing and Dementia in Scotland
  This report has identified the important role suitable housing plays in the life of the person affected by dementia, including family, friends, neighbours and practitioners. Full recognition of housing within the current movement to integration can increase the opportunity
for the individual to live well with dementia. However, care must be
taken to ensure the person who is the owner occupier is not disadvantaged in this process and the important work of educating the wider workforce cannot be underestimated. Listening to the
voice of those affected by dementia and exploring the evidence for interventions to maintain the person at home is essential to future development. More clearly signposted advice, information and support can take forward the impact of housing on living well with
dementia. This is addressed here by the development of a prototype online resource and website architecture to outline the headings and content of each section of the proposed website.
