Independent Living Schemes
Supported self-contained accommodation
If you are over 60 or disabled and need support to live independently then you are able to apply for Independent Living.
Independent Living Schemes are a warm and welcoming community. All accommodation is self-contained with the reassurance of an experienced Specialist Support Officer on hand to offer help, support and advice.
Emergency assistance is provided if and when needed.
We have a number of Independent Living Schemes, two of which are Flexicare, providing extra care and support.
The level of independence is up to you. You can choose the level of contact with your Specialist Support Officer and how much contact you have in the scheme.
Independent Living Schemes are made up of various flats and bungalows. Although unfurnished, they are fully equipped with an emergency alarm system so you have peace of mind that help is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
There are two costs; your rent and the weekly support charge. These will be discussed with you during your assessment.
You will need to complete an application for housing.
