Sheltered housing

We have sheltered housing properties in both town and country areas in the area covered by the former Taunton Deane Borough Council.

Our homes are one bedroom flats or bungalows. They are self-contained with their own front door, bathroom and fitted kitchen. Flats may have a shared entrance as well.

The homes can be kept as private as the tenant wishes. Some sheltered housing includes a meeting room space where people can meet and take part in activities together, providing companionship and social contact with people who have similar interests.

Safety and reassurance is provided through a 24 hour emergency call centre link via the lifeline equipment installed in the property. Tenancy Sustainment staff are also able to provide advice and referral to specialist help and support as needed.

You can find out more from Homefinder Somerset.

As well as the basic rent, there are charges for the support service and helpline. This is detailed in rent statements and are attached to the sheltered property as a service standard.
