Later Life Planning & Coaching

Hopefully your new home will be everything you want

But the chances are that you need a bit of help adjusting to the change. Our coaches can help identify the main anxieties for both you and your family and work out the best ways of tackling them. We will be building this part of the site up with people who we trust and who we know will be able to offer you this kind of service starting with our friend and colleague Lynny Turner, see below.

Join The Home Straight community if you want to be kept in touch with how this network develops.

Lynny was also born and brought up in East Africa, (we all went to school together!) and has personal experience of helping a parent downsize and relocate (and who is now very happy and content).
