As we get older, we need to consider different options on where to live.
This is where you live independently in a house or flat but have added security and support available.
You must be registered on the housing register and be over 55 years old to apply for sheltered housing.
These properties are owned by our housing association partners and spaces are advertised through on our Homechoice website.
Our housing team will talk you through the process in more detail and help you consider the best options.
If you are not eligible to register on the housing register or have adequate savings, you may need to consider buying or renting your own retirement home.
