Moving around your home

Can you move around your home and transfer to and from chairs, bed etc. without help?

Being able to move around your own home is an important part of life, helping you to keep your independence. If you (or a loved one) are beginning to struggle to get around your home, then making some small changes can help.


Top tips

Look for daily living equipment that can help you (or a loved one) to stay safe when moving around

Examples could be:

  • a walking stick
  • motion-sensor night-lights

Take a look at our ‘interactive house’ to find out about the range of equipment that’s available.

Think about making some changes to your home

Perhaps installing grab rails or a stairlift would be helpful.  See the 'funding adaptations and equipment' page for more information.

Move more

Regular physical activity helps to strengthen muscles and improves balance and co-ordination.
