EveryDay Care & Support from Age UK North Tyneside

Help at Home from EveryDay Care & Support

Continuing to live at home is arguably one of the most important challenges people face as they grow older. For many remaining at home enables a sense of independence and freedom, self-worth and identity, comfort, and an ongoing active role in the community. This holds important implications for supporting older people to both sustain living at home and to adjust to changing circumstances.

Older people tend to spend up to 72% of their time inside their homes making the decision about where to live a crucial one. Being able to continue living at home assists the older person by providing a familiar environment within which to contend with the challenges and changes to lifestyle that occur due to the ageing process.

Home also often remains the one stable entity in the lives of the older person when everything else is changing. Living at home supports older people to retain some control over their daily lives and to maintain some independence and autonomy.

Research has found that personal belongings that hold memories and bring comfort, connect older people to the physical space of home. For some, a house itself can be a place of familial heritage and allows the individual to remain connected to the generations of family members who once lived within their walls.

Relationships and roles in the community are also an integral part of the meaning of home and can provide security and comfort. A sense of identity in the community can result from friendly neighbours and nearby friends. Being forced to leave one’s home can sever important community connections and remove the intergenerational aspect of community living.
