The Handy Guide for Older Women looks at the whole woman, not just their housing needs.
The Guide looks broadly at the issues facing older women and what help is available. From health and wellbeing, training and employment and a range of housing alternatives.
The Guide especially focuses on education helping women understand the options that may be available to them, and planning to help women take charge and develop their own goals, strategies and actions. more resources available at https://thehandyguide.com.au/older-women/
