The home environment becomes of greater importance to older people in later life, especially if their health or mobility deteriorates. This paper draws on research with older people aged 65-84 conducted over a two-year period. It looks at changes in people’s home circumstances including moving home and what helps or hinders the transition, as well as changes experienced when people stay put, including making adaptations or alterations to the home, and changes in warden services.
