Older tenants

We know that not every tenant is the same – and everyone has different housing needs.

That’s why we have a range of different housing types – including retirment housing where people get extra support in later life.

What is retirement housing?

We have six retirement housing developments for people aged over 60.

Retirement housing helps older people live as independently as possible with the comfort of knowing there is a retirement housing manager on site for any emergencies, advice and support.

Extra services are paid for by a service charge, which is Housing Benefit eligible and by a Supporting People charge (not payable by those on low incomes). Personal care or meals are not provided. However, this can be arranged through social work.

Our developments are made up of individual flats with their own front door. The majority have a guest bedroom for relatives who wish to visit. We also offer:

  • a retirement housing manager service
  • an out-of-hours alarm service
  • a lift
  • use of a common lounge
  • a communal laundry.
