One of the hardest decisions facing people who need care is the choice between staying in their current home or moving to a new home which might be more suitable. 

A good source of free and impartial advice on housing and care needs is provided by the Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC).  The EAC provide a wealth of information to help you make informed choices about your housing needs. This includes advice on moving or staying put, where to get financial advice, and up-to-date information on a range of accommodation and housing options throughout West Sussex and in other parts of the UK.  

The EAC also provide First Stop Advice, a free telephone service offering advice and information to elderly people, their families and carers about housing options in later life. You can contact EAC First Stop Advice in the following ways.
