55+ Restrictions on housing is really getting me down
I am currently in temporay housing, due to having to leave my last property because my neighbour was making my mental health deteriorate more, LONG STORY. Anyhow, i wanted to bid on a one bedroom ground floor flat as i also have bad legs but the age restriction is 55+ and i am only 45, i would be right round the corner from my best friend and next of kin as he comes and help me with daily living which includes going for my prescription ect. is there anyway i can get around this issue. the flat i want has everything i need such as care link and grab rails. i get so depressed when it says over 55 and start thinking of ageism. Gan someone help me please if they have any idea how to help. I have spoken to the housing officer but how conveinient she doesnt seem to be in the office this week.
She did say that is was due to it being warden controlled but come on now, not everyone is 55 and disabled.
