Sheltered housing

Sheltered housing, sometimes called retirement housing, is specifically designed for older people.

The accommodation usually consists of self-contained flats, so each flat has its own front door, and some communal facilities. There will also be a scheme manager (warden) and all should provide 24-hour emergency help through an alarm system.

There are many different types of sheltered housing schemes and retirement homes to rent or buy.
