EDM #605
Tabled 15 June 2020
2019-21 Session
That this House recognises the important role which housing-with-care settings such as extra care and retirement villages play in the social care system and the particular contribution those settings have made to protecting the health and well-being of their residents during the coronavirus crisis and towards reducing strain on the NHS and care homes; notes the need for a significant expansion of housing-with-care provision for older people; and further notes how such an expansion would help the UK better manage future similar health crises; and calls on the Government to promote measures which will ensure the expansion of that sector.
