Housing support for older people

Models of floating support are also provided to people living in Extra Care housing. Examples of this can be found in the Extra Care - Provision - support page.

Although older people are the largest group of users of housing support, it is also provided for other groups. Resources related to housing support more generally can be found in the Housing Related Support page.

As people age they may need support with practical issues and to maintain their health and wellbeing. As the majority of older people live in general housing there is a need to provide support to enable them to either stay in their current homes or move to a new home if they wish to do so. The resources listed below include guides and examples relating to advocacy, care and repair of housing, floating support, information and advice.
