Sheltered Housing

MSDC is pressing ahead with its plans to “de-shelter” parts of its sheltered housing that it finds difficult to let due to their rural locations and will be charging residents for all costs associated with sheltered schemes in any way.  However, I hope I have helped to persuade it that in Cherryfields changes will only occur when tenants change.

No real consideration appears to be given to the financial and social benefits that occur if people move to accommodation focused on their needs and release larger houses to families.  Availability of sheltered accommodation may also delay the need to move to much more expensive care homes and ease load on the NHS by allowing people to move from hospital to a supported environment.
