Independent living schemes are also referred to as sheltered accommodation, sheltered living and sheltered housing. They are designed for people aged 55+. Here at Accent Housing, we have a variety of independent living schemes in Stockton.
What Is An Independent Living Scheme?
Independent living schemes include a number of flats that are purpose-built or adapted to accommodate the needs of people in later life.
Facilities vary from scheme to scheme, but most sheltered accommodation includes flats for single or double applicants with safety features to promote independence, freedom and safe living. Safety features include accessible bathrooms/wet rooms and emergency pull cords.
The properties have lifts to upper floors, ramps, accessible communal areas and added security. Communal areas differ from scheme to scheme, but most independent living schemes feature a communal lounge, laundry room, landscaped gardens and on-site parking.
Most independent living schemes also have a Scheme Manager, who is always on hand to help. They promote a sense of community and often host events in the communal spaces.
Plus, independent living schemes are always ideally located close to transport links and key amenities, such as shops.
