Housing Options

Housing options

The home you have in later life affects your health and your ability to be independent. Even if you are happy living where you are now, it is wise to think about what you might need from your home in the future.

Planning ahead for your future housing needs is best done alongside other planning such as making a Will, setting up Power of Attorney and financial planning.

What you want and need from your home will be personal to you. Your options will depend on your financial situation, what is available where you want to live, the support you need now or may need in future and the cost of keeping your home warm.

This guide provides information about the options available, whether you want to move soon or are planning ahead.
