Accommodation for older people

We have many bungalows and flats and some self-contained bedsits that are suitable for older people. They provide the opportunity to be part of a mini community where residents can provide help, support and companionship to each other.

Each of these properties is connected to our community alarm service providing peace of mind with help on hand 24 hours a day, 365 days a year via a call monitoring centre. A trained operator will quickly answer your call to see what the problem is and offer appropriate assistance.

Many sites have the benefit of a communal lounge and kitchen where residents can relax over a tea or coffee with neighbours, friends and relatives. 

Some sites also have a laundry with washing machine and tumble drier for use by residents.

If you need any other support to help you live independently at home we are able to provide this through the Older Persons’ Support Alliance.
