The COTA NSW Home Options Information Service assists people in NSW to weigh up their housing options. This service aims to help people decide which of the different types of home options will work for them in later life.
People need help working out whether they should move and what kind of home they can afford. They also need assistance assessing which home option will allow them to work, socialise, or access transport and services in a way that meet their needs.
Some of the things we can help you with include:
What kind of housing options are available to you?
What are the positive and negative features that might be relevant to you as you age?
Will your current housing situation serve your needs into the future, or do you need to make a change?
What are some of the things you need to consider before making a change?
How can the design of your home ensure that it serves your needs at every stage of life?
What are some of the design features you should consider when moving into a new place or renovating your own home?
If you need detailed and specific information about your individual situation, we can refer you to a professional who can give you the help you need.
The COTA NSW Home Options Information Service will soon offer seminars for the general public to spread awareness about the kinds of housing options available to them and what they need to consider when making decisions about housing.
