The companionship tenants enjoy as part of living in Sheltered Housing is usually quoted as the biggest benefit of all. Whilst you have your own home, the shared facilities allow you to socialise with friends and neighbours.
There is always a range of events to keep you entertained, from coffee mornings and lunch clubs, to bingo and social outings.
Some schemes also have regular visits from hairdressers, foot care specialists, therapists and Church ministers. Groups are run by the tenants, for tenants. If you want to be involved in these it is encouraged, but if you prefer not to, there’s no pressure.
