Sheltered Housing is especially designed to fit the needs of older people. It aims to provide good quality housing that helps you to live independently for longer.
Additional services such as, secure door entry systems and alarm services are provided, however they may vary depending on the landlord and the particular scheme. In many cases, a warden service is available for greater reassurance and better security. Please note, these services may not be included in the weekly rent.
There are often activities available to residents including; bingo, coffee mornings, fish and chip suppers, tinsel and turkey weekends and various other trips, although this may vary depending on the scheme.
There are six different housing associations that offer sheltered housing in the Rhondda Cynon Taff area; Aelwyd, Cynon Taf Community Housing Group, Newydd, Trivallis, RHA, and Wales and West Housing Association.
