Chinese elders housing
We provide housing for older Chinese people in Middlesbrough and Newcastle.
Our housing schemes for Chinese elders offer a range of specialist facilities, as well as a secure home that is catered towards your needs.
Part-time Chinese speaking caretakers are on hand to maintain the schemes, including repairs and health and safety. Chinese satellite TV is also available throughout the complex.
Support services include:
- warden call service linked to staff on site
- homecall service to quickly respond to medical and maintenance emergencies
- telecare service which uses monitoring equipment to help you live independently for longer.
A Chinese housing scheme could be for you if:
- you’re aged 60 or over - or living with a partner who is age 60 or over - and of Chinese origin with housing needs
- you feel you’d benefit from being around Chinese speaking staff members who can deal with a range of queries
- you’re looking to have your own personal space, as well as be part of a wider community with regular social activity
- you’re focused on finding a property that is accessible and tailored towards your individual needs.
The facilities on offer are similar to those in our other supported living accommodation.
