Do I qualify for sheltered housing?
In order to qualify for a sheltered housing property, you should:
- have a current application on the Council’s housing register. Some owner occupiers may be considered under certain criteria i.e. have health and housing needs
- be able to live in the property with help of mobile support services (and other services such as Home Helps, Meals on Wheels and care services employed separately)
- be 55 years and over
- not require comprehensive nursing care
- believe that the security of an alarm system and assistance of the Mobile Support Worker will enhance your quality of life
