Following publication of the original article [1], the author notified about the errors in article text body. The correct sentences should be as follows:

  • Older people living alone reported outcome gains 22% lower than older people living with others (Table 4).

  • Taking into account current hourly home care costs, (£16.04, 20) this equates to roughly 16.5 h of state funded social care per week in 2018–2019, versus 17 h a week for the sample based on average unit home care costs in 2006 (£11, 40).
