sheltered housing


This is for older residents who need some support. Here we assist residents to retain their independence with the benefit of greater security and peace of mind.

Our scheme support staff are not direct care providers but act as 'enablers'. Residents are therefore able to access appropriate services to improve their quality of life and to retain independence for as long as possible. Our staff oversee and supervise the day-to-day running of schemes including arranging repairs, resolving service problems and supervising contractors, together with support and assistance to residents.

Scheme staff promote and participate as appropriate in social activities at the schemes and encourage a range of social activities to appeal to various residents' interests. They are not expected to organise and run all these activities but to enable, encourage and support residents to do so. Staff deal with personal emergencies in the first instance but then hand over to other agencies/families, as we do not provide a nursing service or domestic assistance

The main direct support our staff are expected to give to residents include:

  • Daily checks where required (except weekends)
  • Home visits
  • Welcoming new residents
  • Giving advice if sought
  • Co-ordinating services and social activities
  • Acting on a resident's behalf if requested
  • Dealing with problems and complaints
  • Dealing with emergencies
  • Meeting interested tenants and families
  • Viewing vacant properties and giving tours of the scheme
  • Dealing with resales at leasehold schemes

A guest room facility is available in Apollo Place & Bathany Place sheltered schemes . Advance booking is made with one of our staff and there is a a small charge. Please contact the office on 01483 768856 option 2.
