What is sheltered housing?

Sheltered housing is specially designed for people 60 years of age and older. You have your own self contained flat with its own front door but there is help available if you need it and there is access to communal facilities and events. 

The aim is to provide convenient and comfortable accommodation in your own independent home, yet at the same time provide the security of a scheme manager being on site.

Sheltered housing can remove the fear of isolation and loneliness that many people experience as they become older. Knowing that other people live in the same building often relieves these fears.
