What types of sheltered properties are available?
In Northampton there is a good choice of council run sheltered housing. There are currently around 2300 sheltered properties in the town, mostly comprising group’s bungalows or flats. Most flats are now ground or first floor.
The council also runs a scheme called Eleonore House, off Grange Road. This has 27 ground and lift assisted first floor flats where residents receive the same flexible support from independent living officers but the flats are all within the same building and there are additional facilities such as a hairdressing salon and communal lounges.
Refurbishment work is currently being carried out at Eleonore House to both the flats and communal areas to modernise the building. There are no flats to let at present.
