Sheltered housing

CCG has sheltered housing units across Arfon and Meirionnydd. Each sheltered housing site has a designated Supported Housing Officer to provide support to tenants so they can live independently.

The service includes:

  • Support visits to your home (minimum 45 minutes a week). Available Monday to Friday. These visits can be beneficial for someone who is lonely and requires company and support (regular welfare checks) establishing safety and security. The Supported Housing Officer can provide advice or assist on a range of housing related matters
  • Assistants where necessary to help manage money and pay bills
  • Links and referrals to other agencies, such as; shopping or cleaning service by Age Cymru, Citizens Advice Bureau, adaptations, homecare (Social Services) etc.
  • A Personal Support Plan based on your assessed needs
  • Installation of a 24hr emergency alarm system (telephone line must be installed)

NOTE: The Supported Housing Officers are not able to carry out duties such as shopping, cooking, cleaning and personal care. These are the responsibility of care organisation such as, Age Cymru, Social Services and Home Care.
