Sheltered and Extra Care Housing

A strategic review of our sheltered and very sheltered housing was approved by Councillors, an update report was agreed by Councillors in January 2013

For further details please read our  Housing for Varying Needs Review page.

The Very Sheltered Housing Review 2015 was produced by an independent research consultant and provides a detailed study of very sheltered/extra care housing in Aberdeen.The report examines the allocations systems, service delivery, facilities and funding and involved consultation with tenants, staff and external organisations.The review helps to inform and shape future provision in the city at a time when the Council is in the process of realigning its existing sheltered housing stock and increasing the provision of very sheltered housing.An action plan is being developed from this review. You can access the full report by the following link: Very Sheltered Housing Review

Amenity housing, sheltered housing and very sheltered housing all have special adaptations which make them suitable for older people to continue to live full and independent lives in their own homes for as long as possible.

Which of these types of housing would best suit you depends on your age and your health.

Sheltered housing is designed for people of pensionable age. Sheltered housing is usually in grouped developments, most of which have common area for residents to meet and socialise, and other facilities such as laundry. Sheltered developments have a Personal Care Service and a 24 hour call system.

Amenity housing is designed and adapted for people usually 55 years and above with functional and support issues in their current properties.

To be considered for any of these types of housing you need to first complete a Housing Advice Aberdeen Self Assessment . You will be assessed by Aberdeen City Council's Housing Needs Assessment Team.
The outcome of this assessment will determine if you will qualify for Sheltered or Amenity housing.
