Supported housing

Sheltered housing

Sheltered housing provides continued independence and an easy-to-manage home, plus the benefit of on-hand support and the company of others.

Sheltered housing is for residents who are:

  • over 60 years of age
  • able to live independently with some support
  • able to use the facilities of the sheltered scheme
  • able and prepared to live within a close community, sharing communal facilities

Facilities

With sheltered housing, you have your own front door, allowing for friends and relatives to visit whenever they want. Unfortunately, residents are not permitted to keep animals.

Each scheme contains a number of both self-contained flats and bedsits, which normally include:

  • central heating
  • lounge
  • fitted kitchen
  • bedroom
  • bathroom and toilet

All sheltered housing developments are connected to the council's TeleCareLine emergency alarm system.
