Sheltered housing is the term we use for a scheme specifically for older people, offering self contained accommodation usually with communal areas and additional specialist support.
We have sheltered housing services across London, Essex and the South East.
Generally, the services we offer are for people aged 65 and over, but in some schemes we accepts people over 55, if the local authority agrees.
Sheltered housing is for people who still want to live independently but benefit from the security of knowing that there is additional help available if it’s needed. Sheltered housing can also help to reduce isolation as there are often social groups or events organised in the communal areas.
Our sheltered housing usually includes on-site amenities such as:
- Communal lounges
- Laundry facilities
- 24 hour emergency pull cords
- Communal gardens
Customers can live in our sheltered accommodation for as long as they are able to manage independently; if your needs change, we can help find you somewhere more suitable.
What support do we offer?
We can provide various levels of support, depending on your situation.
This kind of support is right for you if:
- You are struggling to manage in your home or it is unsuitable for your needs
- You would like to continue to live independently but with the security of knowing that there is support close to hand
- You need help to develop or maintain your ability to live as independently as possible in your own home
Some of our sheltered schemes have staff on-site whilst others have regular visits from support workers. Along with the specialist support provided, we can also help you with things such as your money, health, getting involved with your local community and improving your health, wealth and wellbeing.
