What is sheltered housing?
Sheltered housing may be a suitable option for those over 65 who are retired and looking for suitable and secure housing in order to continue to live independently. Sheltered housing gives older people the independence of having their own flat with the security of having an alarm system with mobile teams for out-of-hours emergencies. The flats are self-contained studios or one bedroom flats in a complex which often has a communal social area.
Most Camden schemes have a sheltered housing manager available Monday-Friday 9am-5pm while some schemes have a manager on site three days a week. We can sometimes nominate applicants to sheltered housing associations within the borough.
