Sheltered housing

This section contains details of both Sheltered housing and Extra care housing schemes available in Devon.

Sheltered housing is a type of ‘housing with support’, which you can buy or rent.  This could suit you if you want to live independently but need a bit more support, or if you want to live in a smaller and easier-to-manage home. It is usually only available to those aged 55 and over.

Some common features of sheltered housing include:

  • help from a scheme manager (warden), or support staff
  • 24-hour emergency help through an alarm system
  • communal areas, such as gardens or lounges
  • social activities for residents.

Extra-care housing (also called assisted living) offers more support than sheltered housing, but still allows you to live independently. You live in a self-contained flat, with your own front door, but meals may be provided. Personal care and support services are generally available on-site 24 hours a day.

Unlike sheltered housing, extra care housing is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). They inspect extra care housing and provide ratings.
