You may feel that your accommodation is no longer suitable for you. Your property may be too large or you may have moved to suit the particular needs of the person you cared for, to a bungalow for example.
It may be that you live in local authority housing or housing association property and your landlord is asking you to move to a smaller property, or you may be concerned about the cost of running your home.
Do not feel rushed into a decision. If you are feeling vulnerable it is easy to be pressurised into doing what others want. You may find it helpful to only make one decision at a time.
Your local Citizens Advice Bureau will be able to offer you advice if you are having difficulties with accommodation.
If you call us at Help & Care on 0300 111 3303 one of our advocacy team may also be able to advise you.
