Inclusive housing and family carers: An exclusive survey by COFACE members, Unaf and APF France handicap

Unaf and APF France handicap published the results of a survey on carers in relation to inclusive housing which formulate recommendations for stakeholders in the field and public authorities.  

For family carers, the question of where to live with their relatives can be a source of fear or difficulty. Between security and freedom, their expectations are multiple. Alternative solutions to living at home and living in an institution exist, such as inclusive housing, but are not always identified locally. This is why, in October 2021, Unaf and APF France handicap launched a concise survey for family carers to: 

  • Identify the difficulties faced by family carers in finding a suitable housing solution for their relative  
  • Determine if inclusive housing can be, according to them, an appropriate response to their relative’s needs 
  • 220 carers responded to the survey which was distributed online between 13 October and 14 November 2021. 

The results are divided into 5 parts: 

  • Profile of carers and people cared for 
  • Carers’ perception of their relative’s place of living 
  • Carers’ knowledge of and need for information on inclusive living 
  • Carers’ perception of the adequacy of inclusive housing with the needs and expectations of their relative 
  • Lessons learned from the survey
