Care in the home and independence

With a rapidly aging population and a shortfall in accommodation many people are concerned about housing options in later years. They will want to make sure they are safe in their property and will receive care, if necessary

 

Care and support in the home

 

Whether you are in your own home and need Orwell Housing Care Services to come to visit you on a daily basis or you are looking for somewhere that is going to offer you safety, then a housing association should be the first organisation on your list. The care and support that is on offer can be tailored around you and your needs; it may just be someone coming to visit you regularly to administer medication and help with your daily needs or permanent assisted housing.

 

Helping the elderly

 

As the population grows so does the number of older people in our society. There are an estimated 10 million people over 65 in the UK today and it is estimated that this number will double by 2050. Better medical procedures and new drugs means everyone is living longer. The need for better care in the community is being met by housing associations across the country. Many older people have lived in their own home for many years; therefore to look after them at home makes life easier and more comfortable for the person needing care.

 

Supported housing and meeting friends

 

There are many different types of housing available for people with varying needs; it is estimated that there are 1.5 million people in the UK with learning disabilities many of who lead normal lives and hold down a job. One way for people to be cared for is in a sheltered housing scheme where they can be reassured of meeting new friends and also know they will be looked after by professional carers.

 

Helping the homeless or abused

 

If you are facing homelessness or are already alone and desperate then Temporary Supported Housing (TSH) may be the answer to your problems. Many housing associations provide short-term help to those who have become homeless or have suffered some form of abuse. Figures released in 2013 shows that 34,080 households with children were classed as homeless and 76,790 families were also living in temporary accommodation. If you find yourself in a sheltered housing scheme you will be given help from dedicated staff and given the opportunity to move forward with your life.
