How We Develop Your Plan B

We are an independent service designed to enhance the wellbeing of older people. We assist you and your family to plan your living arrangements at this important life stage.

At Transition Navigators we recognise that it is not always easy to work out what accommodation choice is right for you and what support is available to you, either in your own home or within the wider community.

We help older people who want to put into place plans to adapt their home so it is more suitable for their changing needs. We also help older people to recognise when their home no longer supports their needs, and develop with them the criteria they are looking for in their new home.

We are committed to finding the best accommodation solution for each older person so that their quality of life is assured.
