If you are 60 or over you can apply for sheltered housing and extra care sheltered housing.
Sheltered housing helps you:
- maintain an independent and active lifestyle in a secure and friendly environment
- retain the privacy of your own front door with facilities that suit your needs
Sheltered homes are situated near local amenities, with the added security of a 24 hour alarm service, out of hours service and a sheltered housing scheme manager.
Extra care sheltered housing is similar to sheltered housing but is suitable for older people who need more care and support. It provides:
- self contained flats with the benefit of some shared services
- support from trained care staff providing flexible, individually tailored packages of care and support on site
Your chances of getting a sheltered home in the borough are reasonably good as we have a large amount of properties.
