Supported and sheltered housing
Sheltered accommodation and supported housing are types of accommodation for older people or people with a disability, which include relevant care and support services.
Sheltered accommodation is a flat or bungalow specially designed and built with the needs of older people, or people with a disability in mind.
There are lots of variations between sheltered housing schemes but they usually provide self-contained accommodation with warden/sheltered housing support services, where help is on hand for support and assistance. Some schemes have communal facilities, such as a communal lounge and laundry facilities.

Supported housing is usually for people with disabilities who need housing-related or care-related support. People can have their own tenancy and may live independently, or three or four people may live at the same address.
Extra care housing offers a way of supporting people to live independently for as long as possible. It provides the security and privacy of a home of your own, a range of facilities on the premises, combined with access to 24-hour care/support services if required. More information is available from North Yorkshire County Council.
