Updated self-help guides on Making your home a better place to live with a long-term condition

Care & Repair England, working with Silverlinks, has updated its range of self-help guides for older people with long term conditions and their carers on making their home a better place to live.

There are six guides covering respiratory, macular and heart disease, dementia, stroke and arthritis; and a general online guide for people with long term conditions.

Each guide advises on what people can do to their home to make living with long term conditions more manageable. They look at areas such as: –

  • design and layout
  • lighting and heating
  • safety, security and technology
  • gadgets and equipment
  • going out and about

The aim is to make life easier so that people can continue to live independently and do the things they want to do.

The guides also describe the range of alternative housing options and offer suggestions about where to find more detailed information, advice and help.

These guides can be accessed on the Silverlink’s Information for Older People page.
