Housing options

Many of us find that as we get older we start to think more about where we live. Whether it's moving in with family, renting, or sheltered housing, there are lots of different options.

I'd like to stay at home

I've decided to move

I want to move to where I can get more support

Sheltered housing

If you want to live independently but somewhere easier to manage, sheltered, or retirement housing could appeal to you.

Care homes

If you need more personal care than sheltered housing can give you, moving to a care home could be an option.

Don't get caught out

Det. Inspector Simon Lawrence from the Met Police warns about the increase in burglaries during Autumn & Winter.

Sir Naim Dangoor

We are grateful for the generous support of the late Sir Naim Dangoor, CBE, and the Exilarch's Foundation.

A small favour

All the information and advice we provide on the website is free and completely independent, as is our National Advice Line that is open 365 days a year.

But demand is going up. We are an ageing population and more people than ever are coming to us for support, which is why we need to ask for help.

If you are able to, just a small gift today could help us reach even more older people wherever the need is greatest.

Please support our work
