Accommodation for older people
Some of our homes are set within schemes of bungalows, flats and some self-contained bedsits that are suitable for older people. We have over 1000 homes within these sorts of schemes.
The age restrictions are slightly different for each scheme, either being selected for people over 50, 55 or 60.
Living within one of these schemes may be particularly suitable if you’d:
- Prefer to have neighbours who are a similar age to you
- want to a smaller home which is easier to look after
- want to keep your independence but with peace of mind and reassurance of having access to an emergency alarm service & helpline 24 hours a day.
All our schemes have self-contained accommodation, each having their own front door, kitchen, bathroom and living room.
Additional site facilities vary with many have off street parking, communal gardens, a laundry and secure door entry systems. Some sites also have access to communal rooms and mobility scooter stores.
The emergency helpline is run by highly experienced response officers who are trained in first aid and are able to assess whether emergency services should be called. They can also contact your doctor, family or carer if you need it.
If you need any other support to help you live independently at home we are able to provide this through our Support Services.
Don't have a local connection to the area? Give us a call anyway!
If you or a family member are over 50 and want to live in North Somerset but don't qualify through the local housing register, we may be able to help.
We have a number of smaller homes that often become available outside the usual housing register and allows us to let them directly. These homes are usually bed-sits or one-bedroom flats and are in a variety of areas across North Somerset.
Contact us today and enquire about our older persons accommodation. If we don't have any available right now, we'll add you to our waiting list for any in the future.
