Sheltered and Supported Housing
Basildon Council provides specialist housing for older tenants in a number of Sheltered Housing schemes.
All Basildon Council's Sheltered Housing schemes, include 24-hour emergency care alarm cover and a Scheme Co-ordinator who looks after one or more schemes.
Sheltered Housing provides older residents with a comfortable, manageable and secure home of their own; preserving their privacy, dignity and independence, whilst giving them ready access to additional support when they need it.
The Scheme Co-ordinator maintains daily contact with residents and can organise a whole range of additional services to help.
However, it should be realised that sheltered housing is not intended, and not designed, to provide nursing care.
For further information contact the Sheltered Housing Team, see contact details below.
Basildon Council's Sheltered Housing Team is accredited with The Centre for Housing and Support award for excellence in providing sheltered housing services.
