Retirement/Sheltered Housing

Sheltered Housing

Retirement/Sheltered housing offers independent living to residents, backed up by the availability of professional support. Residents live in a safe and secure environment, supported by a friendly high quality service which emphasises the resident’s right to make their own choices and decisions within their own home.


Sheltered/Retirement Housing

Sheltered/retirement housing schemes allow residents to live independently with the option of professional support at hand when required.

They are designed to accommodate elderly persons, however other people may be considered pending their requirements, for example in disabled people's accommodation.

A number of providers operate sheltered/retirement schemes in Torfaen. For more information contact Torfaen Homeseeker.

Extra Care Schemes

Extra care is similar to sheltered housing, with residents having their own front door and tenancy, but there are more facilities and greater care and support. Ty George Lansbury in Cwmbran is Torfaen’s first extra care facility.

It offers 35 self-contained apartments with on-site communal facilities and optional care packages. Care and support is available 24 hours a day and can be adapted to meet the changing needs of residents.

Communal facilities include lounge areas, a hair salon, laundry room, library, an indoor bowls arena, patio area and bistro. There is also a guest bedroom which residents can book for family visits.
