Living at home longer
A guide to housing in old age
Most elderly people would like to grow old in the familiar surroundings of their own home. This can be made possible, even if they are reliant upon support and care, for example by adapting homes to older people’s needs, through neighbourhood help or the provision of social services.
The guide to housing in old age by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth answers questions and informs about many opportunities for senior citizens. Checklists help to figure out the personal housing needs and preferences or to choose the right home care service.
