Retirement living

If you enjoy your independence but need support to manage on your own, then look at our retirement living communities.

Designed for the over 65s, our schemes offer the perfect balance of independence, support and community. 

We have a choice of well-designed bungalows and apartments in purpose built communities across Peterborough. Each property comes with a modern kitchen, fitted bathroom, spacious living area and one or two bedrooms. For added security, most homes have a door entry system so you can choose who you want to let in.

When it comes tyo looking after your home, you don't need to worry. We'll take care of any repairs or maintenance work, so you can spend time doing the things you enjoy.

Our communities have a range of on-site facilities too, such as a laundry, visiting hairdresser, mobile library, landscaped gardens and a residents' lounge - perfect for coffee mornings, bingo and other social events.

Situated in popular locations, you'll find shops, cafes, churches, a post office and GP surgeries close by. Most schemes are within walking distance osf a regular bus service, which makes getting into town or further afield easy. 

We've got 27 schemes across Peterborough and there's a mix of bungalows and apartments to choose from. Find out more about the schemes and where they're located. 

Stay active

If you move to one of our schemes, you’ll never be short of things to do. You can take part in organised social activities and trips, meet new people or even start a new hobby. And you can still carry on doing all the things you enjoy now with your friends and relatives.

Sheltered housing

Get 24-hour support

Each home is linked to the LifeLine emergency alarm service. So if you have a fall or become ill, you can contact someone straight away, 24 hours a day. They'll get in touch with your family or call the emergency services if you need urgent care. What's more, a Scheme Manager will be on hand to keep an eye on you and arrange any day-to-day support you might need.

Can I move into retirement housing?

You'll need to be 65 or over and either have a need for housing-related support or show that you would benefit from living in a retirement community.

You can find all the information on how to do so on the Peterborough City Council housing website.  You can also call into the Council offices in Bayard Place for an application form.
