Stay in the home you love for longer
A lot of our calls at Independent Age relate to staying independent and continuing to live in your own home. Often people are finding it harder to do things around the house such as getting in and out of the shower, going up and down stairs or preparing food.
If you think you might need some support so you can keep living independently at home, there are different options available. It might be a small change – like a perching stool sit on while you prepare food. You might need something larger, like a stair-lift to help you up and down the stairs. Or you might help with personal care or household chores. It is always worth exploring if you might be eligible for care or support from your council or a charity.
