    During 2016, CIH Scotland commissioned housing consultancy Arneil Johnston to deliver the second phase of its housing and dementia programme.

    This phase of the research focused on improving the links between housing organisations and partners in health, social care and the third sector, with a specific emphasis on the role of the housing professional in meeting the needs of those living with dementia. The research mapped out the role of housing staff and services across four key interactions (pathways), which form important stages of the dementia journey.

    It is hoped that the outcomes of this study will enable an improved understanding of housing's role in dementia care, by setting out clearly the contribution that housing staff and services can make.
