Housing for Over 55s

We offer high quality, attractive and secure accommodation for couples and single people, aged 55 and over.

Designed for those who want the freedom to live independently within a community of similar aged people; we provide excellent facilities and the reassurance of additional support whenever it is needed.

We have a range of housing types including apartments, houses and bungalows, suitable for your individual needs. With your own front door and plenty of space, you can feel part of a community, with the comfort of knowing care and support is on hand, 24-hours a day, should you ever need it.

Retirement Living Schemes

Promoting independent living for those aged 55+, many offer state-of-the-art facilities,  with all the home comforts you could ever need and designed with you in mind. 

What is a PFI?
You will notice that seven of these schemes are listed as PFI. This is a Private Finance Initiative, where we have worked in partnership with others to enable us to offer these quality large-scale buildings. You can read more here.

  In Cheshire, with Avantage, they are Hazelmere, Hollymere, Oakmere and Willowmere.

   In Stoke, with Sapphire, they are Maple West, Oak Priory, Willow Barns.

Sheltered Accommodation
Sheltered housing 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. Once again, available to those aged 55 and over, they can offer support such as:
 - help from a scheme manager (warden), or support staff
 - 24-hour emergency help through an alarm system

We have around 50 sheltered housing schemes across Lancashire, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Yorkshire and Staffordshire. All are listed to the box on the right/bottom of this page.
