Housing for older people

Housing for older people overview

As we get older we often need a little more support. There are various housing options available which are purposely designed to provide older people with support whilst retaining their independence as much as possible.

The options available are:

  • you can stay in your home but have a carer come to help you out
  • supported housing: which enables you to have your own property but share communal facilities and also have interaction with others
  • new living developments with flexible care and services at hand with a focus on a social community
