Sheltered housing offers accommodation, often within complexes, especially designed with the needs of older people in mind.
It aims to provide a safe environment where people can make friends and enjoy a range of social activities while living independently. In many cases, a warden service is supplied for greater reassurance and better security.
Each association has its own rules about who is eligible to apply for sheltered accommodation. If you are interested in applying for this type of accommodation, you can contact the association that manages your chosen complex. It may be useful to visit several complexes before making a formal application, to give you the opportunity to meet and chat to other residents about how they find living there.
