Although typically very pretty, Derbyshire's housing is often inaccessible in at least two ways. Firstly, house prices are soaring as 'second homers' flood the market. Secondly, they commonly feature hairpin bend stairs and narrow passageways which may be difficult to navigate for those in their later years.
Funded by Derbyshire County Council and Derbyshire Dales District Council, Age UK Derbyshire Housing Options provides a 'listening ear' and practical advice to those who are finding it difficult to stay in their own homes.
The service enables older people to understand the options available to them. It helps them to navigate the often complex systems and processes that are determined by the authorities. Through Derbyshire Housing Options, older people are empowered to make the right choices for them with regard to their housing needs.
