An advice and information service for older people
EAC and its partners offer comprehensive, impartial advice on sheltered housing, retirement housing, care homes and care & support services for older and elderly people, making sure that all options have been considered. HousingCare.org and EAC FirstStop Advice are here to help you decide to move or not to move, what care services or accommodation you may need, and much more.
After browsing our website, or searching our directories of accommodation or services, you may still be unsure which options are best for you. Why not phone our professional advisers to discuss which might best meet your needs?
We can also advise on financial matters and on your rights: Phone EAC FirstStop Advice on 0800 377 7070.
Our advice line service is free.
Housing options appraisal tool (HOOP)
Why not take a few minutes to review what matters most for you. Our HOOP tool has been devised to do just that: it asks you questions about different aspects of where and how you live now. You can answer as many or few as you like. It then provides suggestions to help you resolve any problems you have identified.

- The location of all retirement and sheltered housing in the UK

- An online housing options self appraisal tool (HOOP)
