Sheltered Housing

We have two sheltered housing complexes designed to support people aged 60+ who require some additional support to continue to live independently in their own homes and engage in the wider community.   The aims of the service are to provide:

  • high quality housing at an affordable rent
  • housing support services that allow older people to sustain a tenancy in their own 
  • an environment in which older people are supported in ways that they wish

If you think you would benefit from one of our supported complexes, please contact a member of our housing team for more information. 

Orchard Court

Our Orchard Court (Carmyle) complex has 29 self-contained flats that over-look a shared courtyard.  The residents can enjoy the shared courtyard, join in the social activities in the common room and use the dedicated laundry facilities.

Helenslea Complex

Our Helenslea Complex (Methven Street) has 29 flats based in a shared facility.  The Complex is accessible through a secured entry system, which allows residents to feel more secure in their homes and common areas.  The residents can enjoy the shared private courtyard, join in social activities in the common room, use the dedicated laundry facilities and take advantage of the on-site hair dressing station.

Registered service 

Our sheltered housing service is registered with the Care Inspectorate, who are an independent scrutiny organisation who inspects services and drives improvement (across the health and social care sector).  We are regularly inspected by the Care Inspectorate and are committed to ensuring we continue to deliver a high quality service. 

Our employees who provide support at our Complexes are registered with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC).  The SSSC provide a code of practice for all health and social care workers, the code sets out the behaviours and values expected of employees and employers.  The code lets you know what you can expect from the service and its workers.  

Duty to report

Every health and social professional organisation must be open and honest with the people that use the service.  This includes letting them know when something goes wrong.  This requirement is called ‘duty of candour’, and we produce an annual report to highlight our responsibilities and any actions required.  Click here to view our report.
