Older people's housing

There are many housing options available to older people. If you’re not sure what would be best for you, you can complete a short survey on the Housing Options for Older People website.

Extra-care housing

Extra care housing offers more care and support than sheltered housing. People live in their own flat on a specially developed site, with a 24-hour professional care presence, enabling privacy and independence in a safe environment.

Strawberry Gardens is a new extra-care housing scheme opening in Yatton in spring 2020. The waiting list opens on Monday 1 July.

You can find out about eligibility and how to apply for Strawberry Gardens and other extra-care housing schemes on the North Somerset Online Directory website.

Sheltered housing

Sheltered housing is designed to cater for retired and older people and create a community to promote friendship and a feeling of security. You will usually live in a one or two-bedroom flat or bungalow, with its own front door, in a block or group of similar properties. Some sheltered housing properties share communal facilities such as a lounge‚ laundry and garden.

Retirement properties for sale

We own a number of private retirement properties which people aged over 55 can buy. The properties are managed by Alliance Homes who provide services to offer residents a worry-free independent environment.
