How do I want to feel?

Most of us would like to remain in our own homes for as long as we can. Therefore, it might be a good idea to consider what will be important to you in the years ahead. Some people may need to make adjustments to their current home, whereas for others a move might be necessary.

To remain in your own home for longer, it is worth considering:

  • Parking near the main entrance
  • The possibility of having all necessary rooms and functions such as kitchen, bathroom and bedroom on one level, at the entrance level
  • Step-free access/entrance area, possibly with the option of a simple ramp
  • Lift options
  • Spacious bathroom
  • No heavy entrance doors, or doors to basements, parking facilities, etc.
  • No thresholds or low thresholds that are bevelled/sloping
  • Internet – Stable internet access is important for different types of security and alarm technology, welfare technology, etc.
