Housing related support

Most people want to stay in their own homes with the right support and services around them.

Staffordshire Connects is a searchable directory of local services which can help you to stay safely in your own home.

There are many pieces of equipment and tools available which can make everyday tasks easier. These range from help with putting on socks to adjusting the heating in your home. Our daily living equipment and technology page has lots of helpful information, links and advice.

If you decide you cannot live safely in your current home any longer, there are specialist housing options available. These options aim to make life easier for older and disabled people so they can still live independently. There are several options of specially designed accommodation with access to varying levels of support and care. Options include:

  • age-exclusive housing

  • sheltered housing

  • extra care housing

  • supported living accommodation

Residential and nursing care is suitable for people with higher levels of needs who are unable to live independently any longer.

Your local district or borough council can provide other important information about social or affordable housing, energy efficiency and advice, and homelessness.
