We offer a number of schemes and services that can assist you to live fulfilled independent lives and aim to provide personalised support, care and security.

Supported Housing

Supported Housing is a term used to describe rented accommodation available to those over 55 years. It combines the privacy of your own home with the peace of mind of 24 hour emergency assistance via Dudley Telecare, and the help of a Supported Living Co-ordinator. Our aim is to help individuals live independently within a safe, secure, and homely environment.

There are 11 specially built housing schemes located around the Dudley Borough. Each scheme provides a range of communal facilities including a lounge, kitchen, laundry, communal gardens, and a guest bedroom to make you feel comfortable and right at home.

To apply for accommodation or for further information contact the team on: 01384 81 2042.

Shared Lives

Shared Lives is a scheme run for individuals with care or support needs, such as disabilities. It is a system where a carefully matched foster carer shares their home and family with the individual who needs assistance for a better quality of life. They can offer long term placement, or short term care such as daytime support.

It is an alternative to live independently but not alone or in care, and with personalised support to ensure a better quality of life.

Living Well, Feeling Safe

The Living Well, Feeling Safe scheme is a partnership that offers older individuals safety, security and wellbeing advice in their own home. This includes advice on alarms, housing options, home adaptations, and fire safety advice.

The scheme is made up of the council and other local organisations such as Age UK Dudley, West Midlands Police, Victim Support and West Midlands Fire Service.

Following an assessment by a partnership officer, appropriate services will be contacted and arranged for assistance and support. It is ideal for those who feel vulnerable, isolated, or in need of a little advice.

Dudley Telecare Service

The Dudley Telecare Service is a technology based system that offers continuous monitoring and helps to minimise risk. Devices include a range of alarms and sensors that are linked to the emergency monitoring centre where our call handlers are available 24/7 to respond when triggered or called.

The products are unobtrusive and flexible, and have transformed the lives of individuals who wish to continue to live independently while having reassurance of safety within the home.

Winter Warmth Support Scheme

The Winter Warmth Support Scheme aims to help residents keep warm and well in their homes over winter. The service runs all year round and offers a range of advice and practical support to help heat homes. This may include free home energy visits, advice to help reduce bills or help to access energy grants and discounts.

The Winter Warmth Support helpline is available to anyone who is concerned about themselves or another to keep warm: 01384 817086.
