HOOP - Housing Options for Older People

An interactive online tool to assess your housing options

What does it do?

'HOOP' is an online questionnaire designed to help older people think about their home, how well it works for them, how to tackle any problems and whether also to consider moving home.

Work your way through the questionnaire, marking any concerns that you have with your current home, and at the end you will receive personalised suggestions, details of local services and recommendations for further reading. 

If you need more support than the tool can offer, there is the option to submit your results to EAC and ask for further advice and/or information with the EAC FirstStop Support Service.

Who it is for?

Older people, their carers, friends and family, and all adults who are thinking about their future housing and care options.

Where it is available?

National service (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales).

What it costs:

Totally free

How to access or apply for it:

Immediately accessible at http://hoop.eac.org.uk

What to expect then:

Our questionnaire will help you think about different aspects of your home and how you live in it. You can either pick topics from a list, or let us guide you through the whole questionnaire. Once you're done, we will suggest ways of tackling any concerns you have identified.
