Housing with care and support

There are lots of choices available if you are thinking of different options for housing and accommodation as you or a relative gets older. This section describes the options available and provides links to the services available so you can search for the ones that you think will suit your needs best.

The need to move into a residential or nursing care home should only be considered when all other options for either remaining at home with additional support or moving into other types of accommodation which provide a level of care, have been considered and tried.
