Housing Options for Older People

“Housing Options Scotland gave me hope, from the first time I met them, that there was a way through the web of complexities in moving, to be nearer family. The move has made an immense improvement to my quality of life. I am living in a retirement complex, close to my two daughters. I am more relaxed about everything, and therefore much less likely to have stress related health problems. Housing Options Scotland were always there when I needed them, and came up with the goods. I would definitely contact them if you have housing problems, or are considering making a move.”
Danny Jones

As you get older, making sure you have a home that suits your needs is very important. So, whether you are looking to downsize, move nearer to family or your support network, making sure that your current home is adapted to your physical needs or for any other reason, we can help.

Military Matters

“I found Housing Options Scotland very supportive, I was really at that stage where I didn’t know if I could cope any more. The organisation helped find me a house that ticked everything off of the list that I wanted for my girls and I. My new home has completely exceeded my expectations, I love the area, the neighbours are lovely and we’ve got everything around us we need. Housing Options Scotland were absolutely amazing, they were up to date with everything to do with housing and I couldn’t recommend the service more.”

Volunteering

“My name is Christine and I have been a volunteer for Housing Options Scotland since 2010. The organisation helped my son find the right home in the right place, I am so grateful that I offered my time to share my experience of finding housing. Volunteering has been really rewarding and I would encourage anyone to give their time to something that means a lot.”
