Housing options

Moving home or deciding where to live is a big change and there are lots of things to consider. 

These pages are designed to give you some information about the choices you may have. 

  • Remaining at home and making small changes (sometimes called adaptations) to your home, can make it safer and easier to stay independent. 
  • You might want to think about larger adaptations such as stair lifts and wet rooms, or think about downsizing. 
  • If you have some care and support needs, then sheltered housing or home care services may suit you best.
  • If you have been assessed by adult social care as having care and support needs, then extra care sheltered housing or residential care may be best.
