Housing for older people

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. You live in your own flat on a scheme which also has communal facilities and 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 autumn 2020.

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. It is usually 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 will share communal facilities such as a lounge‚ laundry and garden.
