There are many reasons why you might be considering where to live as you get older. Health and mobility difficulties, changes to your household size, and a wish to be closer to family and friends, or to shops and services, are a few examples.
The website “Independent Age” has a great new guide to moving house and it’s free to download.
Moving can be a big upheaval, so considering your future needs now will give you more choice and control. Think about where you want to live, your health and care needs, and your budget. Health and care needs, in particular, might change, so it’s important to take these into consideration.
Independent Age’s new guide is called “Choosing where to live: How to find the right option for you” and it helps you to consider your options. It looks at:
Is your home right for you?
Deciding your priorities
Staying where you are
Moving, and the different housing options available
Getting help with the move
