How to choose where to live in retirement  

When you start to consider options for retirement living or accommodation for later life - for yourself or someone else - you are bound to have questions. We can help.  

The terminology used to describe accommodation and services designed for older people can be confusing. You’ll find there are big differences between the lifestyle and support on offer too. For example, a residential care home is completely different to a retirement village.
