Home improvement consultation for sheltered housing residents in North Lanarkshire

Auchengeich Gardens sheltered complex

People living in council run sheltered housing complexes in North Lanarkshire are being asked their views on potential changes to current services.

The residents will have the opportunity to take part in discussion forums and meetings with North Lanarkshire Council housing staff, and will be asked to take part in a survey so they can help shape the council’s future sheltered housing support service.

Stephen Llewellyn, head of housing solutions at North Lanarkshire Council, said: “The housing needs of older people have changed significantly over the years. People are living longer and our policies, facilities and procedures need updated to better meet the health and wellbeing requirements of those living in our complexes.

“This will involve investment not only to improve facilities, but also tailoring services so we are providing the most appropriate care and support for people to continue living independently.

“We are undertaking a full consultation process with sheltered housing residents, their families and carers, sheltered housing officers and other interested parties over the next few months, so we can get a better understanding of the needs of our residents.”
