Public Sector Older Persons (Sheltered) Housing

About sheltered housing (older persons)

Older Persons Housing

Older persons (sheltered) housing, on the Isle of Man, is a specialist housing provision targeted at older people who wish to live in a community of people of a similar age with the benefit of access to a "good neighbour" Warden or Scheme Manager who will look after the complex and check on a regular basis (usually daily) that all is well. Each tenant holds a tenancy to their own self-contained accommodation within the Older Persons complex, and is personally responsible for meeting those tenancy requirements. Older Person's Housing is not a substitute for Residential Care or Nursing Home facilities.
