We all want to stay in our own homes for as long as possible. It’s a big part of retaining our independence. But sometimes, as we get older, it can be harder to manage, perhaps because of health problems, disability or bereavement.

The good news is that by making some simple changes to our homes and the way we live in them, we can stay independent for longer.
