Manager's description

“Woodhouse Court is a Sheltered Housing scheme managed by Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council. There are 38 self-contained flats within the scheme, each with its own front door opening onto a street-scene which has an attractive glass roof. All way along the street-scene are raised garden beds, shrubs and trees, where tenants and friends can gather together for a chat. All properties have their own kitchen and bathroom.

Woodhouse Court is a larger scheme with parking to the front and lawned areas to the sides and rear of the building. These are all well maintained for the enjoyment of tenants. For safety there is security lighting installed all around the external areas of the grounds. The main entrance door to the building is permanently locked, providing a secure environment and all tenants have fob access, ensuring their independence.

We are committed to reducing loneliness and isolation and provide communal facilities to enable tenants to enrich their social life by mixing with other residents and joining in with activities and events. Our Sheltered Housing schemes are a real home where we believe residents can enjoy life to the full and live as independently as possible.

Sheltered Housing offers tenants:
• a safe, secure and warm place to live
• support from professional staff to promote continued independence
• peace of mind by knowing that each property is linked to the Telecare alarm system
• their own tenancy with legal rights
• their own front door
• a safe, secure and warm environment
• an easy to manage home
• guest room facilities for relatives/friends.

Each Sheltered Housing scheme is managed by an on-site Supported Living Coordinator during the day. They have a duty to keep in touch with each tenant and to deal with any problems or emergencies appropriately.

The Supported Living Coordinator will:
• aim to provide a quality professional sheltered housing service which is flexible and responsive to individual people's needs and preferences
• carry out wellbeing assessments to promote independence, health and overall wellbeing
• support in resolving tenancy management issues
• signpost and work with other agencies to enable independent living
• respect tenant's rights and dignity at all times and ensure confidentiality
• be responsible for health and safety of the building in line with regulations
• provide a safe and secure environment
• support tenants with repair issues
• respond and support emergency services when required”
