Supported housing and homelessness
Some older people are living in housing which is unsuitable for their needs. Many end up in hospital for long periods of time as their homes are not suitable for them to return to. These people can be considered homeless as the definition of homelessness includes those people who have a home which is not suitable for them.
Supported accommodation provides an option for many people to continue living independently well into their old age.
If you, or a relative, is living in a home which no longer suits your needs or are unable to return home as your house is no longer suitable then you should contact Housing Options, our dedicated housing advice office, where we can provide help and assistance.
