Sheltered accommodation/housing is generally for older people over the age of 55 and consists of either a bungalow or self-contained flat with a warden/manager and care staff on hand if they are needed. Extra Care is for older people to remain independent in an apartment/bungalow with on-site staff available 24 hours a day, providing care and support as and when it is needed.
Available sheltered accommodation and extra care housing is available in St Helens through Under One Roof, and further information about the scheme can be found on the St Helens Council website.
