Thinking ahead: Housing and related care options in later life

This guide comes from a partnership between Carers UK and Care & Repair England as part of their Silverlinks project.

Designed for carers, it covers housing and related care options for older people in later life focusing on a wide range of topics:

  • Help with making appropriate housing choices together;
  • What help is available if you decide it is best for the person you care for to stay at home including;
  • What can help to support people to live independently;
  • How to make the home safe and healthy;
  • Living at home with a long-term condition;
  • What help is available if a move is the option agreed;
  • What to think about in moving in together; and
  • Where to get the further help and advice you need;
