Independent living (Housing Plus)
Housing Plus homes
We have a range of studio, one and two bed apartments and bungalows available to let.
Many Housing Plus homes have recently been refurbished to a high standard.
All our properties benefit from the following:
- emergency alarm system
- level access shower or bath
- safe by design front doors
- private kitchen and bathroom
In addition to your own home, we also provide a range of shared services for our residents.
These facilities are for everyone to use and enjoy and may include:
- shared kitchen
- shared laundry
- shared lounge with television
- multi-function room with hairdressing facilities
- scooter store
Every Housing Plus home is linked to a 24 hour warden call service via an emergency pull cord system.
If you need emergency help you can pull this cord and someone from South Tyneside Council's Telecare and Community Alarm Service will respond.
This service also provides other equipment to support your independent living, including:
- smoke detectors
- flood detectors
- fall detectors
- medication reminders
