A common concern for people who have macular disease (MD) is how the condition might make it harder to carry out daily tasks and live in their own home. But with the right support, some changes and adaptations, most people with MD can and do continue to enjoy living independently at home.
In this brochure we briefly outline the main symptoms of MD and then consider what you can do to your home to make living with these more manageable. We describe the range of alternative housing options and offer suggestions about where to find more detailed information, advice and help for your particular situation. These notes are particularly for older people who may be considering their long term housing and care options anyway.
