Coronavirus: Information and advice

Sheltered homes are grouped together and have a scheme manager. There are usually alarms in the properties in case you need help and there are often shared areas such as a lounge, laundry and garden.

If all members of your household are over the minimum age you may be eligible to apply for sheltered or retirement housing. Age restrictions vary and start at 55.
