The Home Straight

The Home Straight is a Social Enterprise offering Independent Living Solutions to older people. Our core business involves Moving, Downsizing and Ageing in Place options. For many older people, making the decision whether to move or stay can be a daunting process. We at The Home Straight can support people and their families through the entire process of de-cluttering, preparing a home for sale, organizing all aspects of the move and settling in at the chosen destination, whether that is a smaller house, retirement accommodation or care home.

If required, we also offer advice and guidance on improving a person’s wellbeing in their new environment.

However, if a person chooses to stay and future proof their current home, then we can advise on suitable adaptations and project manage this to completion.

The majority of older people want to live in their own homes; they want to be independent and to be as healthy as possible; and most of all they want to be in control of their lives. The Home Straight can support these aspirations by allowing people to maintain or regain their autonomy. We can provide them with the choice of staying in their own home safely rather than having to move into residential care.
