Healthy Age Friendly Homes


This Programme aims to support and enable people to live longer healthier lives in their own home, while being and feeling part of their community. By ensuring they are in a suitable living environment for accessibility, size, safety, and environment, and warmth, the programme will support older people to live in their own home with dignity and independence.

What are the benefits to you?
