Why should you downsize?
We look at the pros and cons of downsizing to a smaller home, or to a different type of home such as sheltered accommodation or a retirement village.
Our checklists give you practical advice on downsizing, including travel and transport, quality of life, safety considerations and other challenges.
Downsizing options and considerations
Whether you’re a homeowner, a private tenant or living in council or housing association accommodation, there are a number of downsizing options available.
Retirement villages are large developments built especially for older people. We explain what they can offer.
Practical issues to consider when sharing a home, such as space, impact on family life and the need for compromise.
Sheltered housing can be a great option, but is it right for you? Our checklist helps you decide.
