    HI and welcome,

    I'm one of the community champions here on scope. It can be extremely difficult to get a bungalow with most councils because there's usually very few available, especially if you're under the age requirement because most of them have rules that you need to be older than 55/60.

    Have you thought about sheltered housing? this maybe an option, or possible a ground floor flat?
