‘Where to live after retirement’


This recent Consumer Publication stresses that the decision where to retire needs to be thought about carefully and in good time. It discusses whether to move, or to stay put and adapt an existing house to be easier and safer to live in, for advancing years may make some activities more difficult - climbing stairs, carrying coal, driving, shopping. The book advises on grants and other help to make any necessary adaptations, deals with the position of private and council tenants, describes sheltered housing schemes, granny flats, mobile homes and discusses the choice of a residential home for elderly people. Some sources of help or information are listed.
