This paper draws on case studies from Counsel and Care’s advice service to highlight issues raised by carers of older people with high support needs. It explores how ‘traditional approaches’ such as residential care and extra care housing could be improved and considers the importance of housing in alternative approaches. It also suggests key elements of a future agenda.
