Sheltered housing

MG 0101

Octavia run six popular sheltered housing schemes, each providing a range of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom flats. Sheltered housing is ideal for those who want to downsize and continue to live independently within a self-contained home but with the added benefits of having access to help if its required. Sheltered housing offers a less intensive care and support service than our Extra care housing. Most of our properties are fully accessible for people with disabilities, but some have steps to the main entrance or inside the buildings.

Our approach to sheltered housing

Live in your own home

Your home will be self-contained, with its own kitchen and bathroom. Most of our sheltered housing properties are unfurnished, so you can bring your own furniture and belongings.

Great locations

All of our sheltered housing schemes are well-located close to local parks, shops and community facilities such as activity centres for older people. They are also within easy reach of tube and bus transport links.

Safety and security

Your sheltered housing scheme manager will keep the building secure and monitor access to the building. All of our homes have community alarm systems with 24-hour emergency support.

On-site support

Your scheme manager will check that you are keeping well and tell you about any groups or residents’ groups that you could get involved in. They will help you with any problems or emergencies that come up and make sure that any repairs to shared areas are completed quickly.

Local support services

We can support you to access local support services such as home adaptations or meals on wheels. We can also help you to maintain social connections through taking part in activities in the community.
