Are you looking for quality and affordable sheltered accommodation in Middlesbrough? Accent Housing may be able to help. We have a selection of independent living schemes available in and around the area.
Who Is Sheltered Accommodation For?
Sheltered accommodation (also known as sheltered housing or independent living schemes) is a collection of homes designed for the over 55’s. Sheltered housing is also a great solution for vulnerable adults.
It is usually a collection of self-contained flats that feature a bedroom (or two), living area, kitchen and shower room, bathroom or wet room. The flats usually benefit from a range of shared facilities, such as a laundry room and communal lounge. There is also landscaped shared gardens and onsite parking for residents and visitors.
But the key benefit of sheltered accommodation is usually the safety and security features that bring residents peace of mind. Aside from a secure entrance and CCTV, sheltered accommodation also features adaptations that make life easier, such as lifts to upper floors and level access showers.
In most schemes, each flat is fitted with an alarm system, so the resident can call for immediate help if required. As well as the alarm system, there is usually a Scheme Manager or Warden on hand to help the residents.
