Sheltered housing

The term 'sheltered housing' generally applies to a group of flats, bedsits (or a mixture of both) that are for rent, and also have shared communal facilities. Sheltered housing is also sometimes called retirement housing.

People choose to live in sheltered housing for many different reasons. You may:

  • be looking for companionship and wish to enjoy a good social life

  • like taking part in, or organising events and activities with people of a similar age

  • want the reassurance that a visiting warden can offer, knowing that help is at hand when you need it

  • still want your own front door, but also want peace of mind from being in a safe and supportive community¬†

  • need varying degrees of help or assistance, but still want to be independent.
