Edinburgh Choices - Housing and care homes

Housing and care homes

Care homes and most supported housing offer help to people 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can get different kinds of help depending on your needs. This map, for example, shows care and housing support available for adults with physical disabilities.

Lots of people who are thinking about care homes are able to carry on living in their own home with a bit of extra support, new equipment or other changes to their house or flat. Make sure you think about all the options that might be available. We will look at your needs, and we may offer you this kind of help, instead of a place in a residential care home or supported accommodation.
