Housing Options for Older People – Do you want to move or stay?


As we get older, our housing needs can change. We’ve made a checklist (below) to help you work out what is right for you. Our advice is to think about what you want now, and what you might want in a few years. That helps you think about whether you want to move to a new home or whether you want to make changes to what you have now.
checklistOur tips

  • If most of the points are ok, look at ways to improve the few that are not ok.
  • If most points are ok now but likely to change, you can start planning ahead now.
  • If there are things that need sorting now, look for options to improve these for you. But still think of the other factors too.
  • If several points are in the ‘need to change now’ column, this should help you work out your priorities for your next house move.

Our officers will be holding information sessions across Angus over the next month or so and will give advice to anyone who pops in between 10 am and 2pm on the following dates and locations:
