Homes for the over 50s
Find out about our housing options for older people
Sometimes described as sheltered housing or retirement housing schemes, our homes for the over 50s give residents access to a 24-hour emergency alarm system, and have staff based onsite for a certain number of hours each week.
Common features include a shared lounge or kitchen area, laundry facilities, communal gardens.
Our older residents can also benefit from the many services we offer — from social activities and community events to daycare programmes and befriending schemes.
These come from the local authority. Please contact your local council to find out more.
We have a floating support service for residents aged 60 and above.
