Independent LivingOur Independent Living Service offers tailored support to enable you to live independently in your own home.
We provide apartments and bungalows for those aged 50 plus with support offered through our life24 service, ensuring peace of mind for you and for those who care about you.
Life24 is our visiting and emergency alarm service which is connected to a response centre 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. There is a small weekly charge for this service.
We provide a level of support, which is tailored to enable customers to live a full life, while ensuring peace of mind for them and their families.
Our aim is to provide tailored support around your needs

We provide our independent living service across different types of accommodation such as:
- apartments in a block, known as independent living schemes
- apartments where care can be accessed via a Social Care package, known as extra care
Our service is flexible and we can deliver it to you in your current home without the need for you to move to one of the above.
Who can apply?
You can apply for independent living bungalows if you are aged 50 or over and independent living schemes if you are aged 55 or over.
For a couple, only one person needs to meet the above age criteria. We will also accept applications from people under the age criteria who live with a disability or have medical conditions.
We will accept applications for independent living housing regardless of whether you rent or own your current home. Your financial circumstances will be taken into account along with your reasons for wanting to move.
