This paper presents an overview of the dallas (Delivering Assisted Living Lifestyles at Scale) programme and discusses a preliminary evaluation framework being developed by the University of Glasgow in collaboration with the dallas programme stakeholders. The dallas programme aims to deliver independent and assisted living solutions across communities in the U.K at scale aiming to reach up to 169,000 individuals between 2012 and 2015. The evaluation of the impact of the dallas programme on care systems and individuals will be undertaken using a multidisciplinary, collaborative, robust and pragmatic mixed-method evaluation framework. The evaluation is designed to capture experiences, derive empirical lessons and share actionable knowledge with stakeholders in the deployment and roll-out of assisted and independent living solutions. This paper briefly describe a preliminary evaluation framework and discuss some of the challenges which arise with a study of the nature, complexity and scale of dallas.
