Homes for people over 60

You may feel you want a different kind of home or more support with daily living without giving up your independence as you get older.

These housing options could be the solution. We can offer you a home in a friendly and secure environment.

Fortune Place - independent living for the over 60s

This development of 54 flats is in South Edinburgh and offers a choice of 1 or 2 bedrooms and double sized showers or wet rooms. There is lift access to the wheelchair adapted homes which are not restricted to ground floors as you might find in other developments. All flats benefit from installed WIFI so tenants are online from the moment they move in. Each flat has either a private balcony or patio and there are two large enclosed and secure shared gardens. There is a concierge who carries our communal caretaking duties and minor repairs for tenants.

Amenity housing - independent living for the over 60s

If you're aged over 60 and don't think retirement housing is for you, amenity housing may be more suitable. These are homes where it's easier to live independently because they've been adapted in some way. You'll find higher plug sockets, lower light switches, wider doors and grab rails in the bathroom. They're not staffed, but some have personal alarm systems. Call the Lettings and New Tenancy team to find out more on 0131 657 0600.

Retirement housing for age 65 and over

All our retirement housing developments have a 24-hour personal emergency alarm service, this means that support is available at any time - day or night.

You'll get a self-contained unfurnished flat with a lounge, kitchen, bedroom and private bathroom and/or shower. There's a communal lounge for social activities, and family and friends can even stay on site in a guest bedroom.

We have 12 independent living developments in Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian.
