Finding somewhere to live

People who live with a serious health problem or disability can experience difficulty in getting around in their home, and in independently and safely completing everyday tasks. You may be in a situation where you slowly begin to realise that you are having difficulties in your current home, or you may experience serious and sudden health problems which mean that your current home suddenly no longer feels suitable.

There are often options available to you that will allow you to make changes to your home, or to how you do things, that will make your home more suitable for your changing needs. Have a look at our section on staying in your home for some ideas.

However sometimes people find that making changes to their home is not enough and that it's necessary to look for somewhere else to live.

And sometimes people also find that they can no longer afford to pay for their current home and need to think about moving on.

The idea of moving, especially if you are struggling with health problems, can be a scary one, but it's important to know that there are options out there for finding a new place to live without having to give up your independence and privacy.
