Retirement Living is sheltered, rented accommodation in Bedford and Luton, specially designed to help people over the age of 55 live independently.

Residents are able to enjoy homes that are self-contained with their own secure front doors for peace of mind, and can maintain their independence whilst living in the surrounding of a friendly and close-knit community. Residents will have the support of a Team Leader or Retirement Living Support Co-ordinator and the use of various communal facilities allowing them to interact and socialise.

You will need to complete an online application form and bid for properties through MyHomeOptions.
