Christmas time - a great time for family discussions

 

Christmas is a great time to reconnect with family and provides an opportunity to identify the potential changing needs of older family members that you perhaps haven't seen for some time.  Time spent together can sometimes highlight changes that you hadn't previously noticed, and is a good time to reassess and discuss a family member's requirements in terms of housing options. 


 

The Elderly Accommodation Counsel provides a free, independent and impartial advisory service through it's FirstStop network, available online over the phone, and through local networks.  The service is for older people, their families and carers and helps individuals get the help or care needed to live as independently and comfortably as possible, whether they want to remain living where they are now, or wish to move to somewhere more suitable.  They are able to discuss the various housing options available, see their website for more information.

 

Moving On are able to help individuals with the practicalities of the moving process, and are listed on FirstStop's website under service providers.
