Also known as extra care or housing with care, there are many different models of supported living. These include sheltered housing, extra care housing, assisted living, close care, continuing care environments and care villages.
This type of accommodation allows you more independence than a care home but with additional care for extra piece of mind. This may include resident management staff, mobility facilities and community alarm services.
If supported housing is not required just yet and you want to remain in your own home, however you feel you would benefit from additional support, you will find information and advice on our Help at Home pages.
When looking for supported living, it is important you have as much information as possible to help you choose a provider that is right for you. To assist you, a list of sheltered housing for older people and care services can be found in the Stockton Information Directory where you can search by postcode and select categories depending on your needs. The information contained in the directory was accurate at the time of sourcing, however these are independent organisations and we are unable to comment on the quality of provision and their details may change over time.
