Housing Options

Where you live and how well it suits you matters - that's why we've created this guide to help you decide what kind of home you'd like as you get older

Age Scotland has written this guide to show you the options that are available for the type of home that you might like to live in as you get older.

The home you live in can make an enormous difference to your mental and physical wellbeing. Even if your current home suits you well, it is good to think about what you might need from your home in the future, for example, in case you start to have mobility problems, can no longer drive or struggle to keep your home warm.

You may want to stay where you are with support and adaptations if you need them, move to a property which suits your needs better, move in with family or move to accommodation which is specifically for older people.
