Older Homeowner's Guide


If you own your home, you probably want to live there independently for as long as possible. There are obvious benefits. Your home may be comfortable, familiar and full of memories. You may have good neighbours and be involved in the local community. You may live close to friends and family, and within easy reach of important services such as your GP.

This guide will help you to make sure the place you live meets your needs as you get older. It covers wellbeing, security and how to deal with some common problems faced by homeowners. From care and support to major adaptations, it explains the help that may be available to look after you and your home, and how to find it.
