Sheltered housing

This type of accommodation usually consists of 1 or 2 bedroom flats (on the ground or first floor) or bungalows.


Although the individual properties are self-contained most schemes also have communal facilities such as a lounge, a laundry room, a garden and facilities for storing and charging mobility scooters.


All sheltered housing schemes in Cardiff have community alarms installed that provide an emergency response service on a 24 hour a day basis. 


Most schemes also have a manager who can help with day to day problems and issues during office hours. 

The manager is also responsible for arranging on-site services (such as visits by mobile hairdressers) and activities (such as coffee mornings, visits and classes).
