Sheltered or retirement housing
If you're over 60 you've probably got decades of experience running your own home. Perhaps you now want the security of knowing help is close by if you need it.
Retirement housing, or sheltered housing, comes in a range of properties, each with a member of staff on standby if you need a hand or there's an emergency.
Support, day or night
Choose from apartments, bungalows, and one- or two-bedroom flats. You get your own intercom to contact support staff, day or night; and your own private bathroom and kitchen.
Some properties have social facilities shared between neighbours, and guest rooms for family or friends to stay.
Provided by not-for-profit landlords across Manchester, sheltered homes are available to rent from around £60 a week. You could probably get Housing Benefit to pay some or all of your rent.
