Sheltered housing

Sheltered housing can offer you a range of services to help you live independently, with the added security of having someone to call on in emergencies.

There are numerous high quality sheltered housing schemes across the Cotswold district and many have communal facilities and offer a range of activities for residents and include the following types of housing:

  • self-contained flats
  • bedsits
  • bungalows.

The scheme managers do not carry out personal or household tasks as these would be done by your relatives, social services or health authorities.
