Sheltered Housing Schemes

Sheltered Housing is a group of self-contained flats or bungalows that have been specifically designed for older people to live independently with the peace of mind of residing within a safe and secure environment.

Offering easy to manage homes with the reassurance of professional help at hand if needed, our Sheltered Housing Schemes are ideal if you want a stress free retirement.

Orbit South has 22 Sheltered Schemes in the South East.
Although there are lots of variations in design between each Scheme, most of our accommodation includes:

  • A mixture of studio, 1 or 2 bed self contained flats.
  • All accommodation includes own bathroom & kitchens – many adapted to meet the needs of customers with mobility issues.
  • Telecare monitoring equipment – state of the art system that provides additional sensors within the accommodation to monitor the safety and well-being of the customer – a falls sensor or a flood sensor are two very popular examples of how this equipment can provide peace of mind to customers and relatives that should an emergency arise, specialist staff are available to respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year,
  • Video Door Entry System – To provide added security, the door entry system allows you not only to speak to the person via an intercom unit, but also to see the person via a digital CCTV camera that transmits the images onto your television screen in your flat.
  • A range of communal facilities, such as laundry, lounge, gardens, hairdresser salon, I.T. suite, guest room, health suites, shops & on site restaurants.
  • A Handyman service that can help with tasks like putting up shelves, hanging pictures/curtains & assembling flat pack furniture.
  • A professional team of Support Staff available Mon-Friday who will provide an individual support service that will provide assistance & enable tenants to live as independently as possible in their own homes.

The Role Of The Tenancy Support Team

The role of the Scheme based Support Team is to provide support to tenants. The support provided is tailored to individual needs and can be flexible as needs change.
Support Staff will:

  • Help you settle into your new home & explain how everything works.
