Downsizing to a smaller home brings a range of challenges both emotional and practical
Your new home may be smaller than where you live now and therefore you may need to consider what will fit and what you need to keep.
We can help you to choose those things which are right for you and your new home. We will work with you at your pace so that you feel in control and comfortable with the decisions that you are making around what belongings to keep and those items you no longer need.
We offer sensitive and practical support for the task of downsizing – from help with floor planning to arranging charitable donations.
By considering your later life housing options now and planning ahead, you will be better placed to enjoy your retirement.
Planning ahead can allow you to remain in control and secure the outcomes you require. It may be that your preference would be to ‘age in place’ in your current home or you may want to consider a new home that will be better suited to your needs in future years.
Our services can help support you through all aspects of the relocation/downsizing/ age in place process to get you where you want to be for a long and happy retirement.
Age in Place
As you age your existing home may become more difficult for you to manage – but that doesn’t mean you have to move.
We understand that many older people would like to continue to live in their current home for as long as possible. Living independently in your current home can be possible for some with additional support and adaptations.
We can help you make that choice. Using our knowledge and experience we can work with you to access appropriate support. This may be in the form of arranging practical modifications to your home or by working with you to create a safe living environment for example, accessing telecare and/or reorganising possessions to create safe walkways.
