Housing With Care - Frequently Asked Questions

How do I qualify to become a tenant?

You must be over 65 with a specific care need and will require a Social Services assessment by the Adult Social Care Team to be eligible for Housing With Care. You must have a local connection to South Cambridgeshire or the City to qualify for social housing.

For more information, please contact a Housing With Care Manager at one of our schemes.

What am I paying for as a tenant?

Payment to CHS (your landlord) covers rent and service charges for your flat and two/three course daily lunchtime meal freshly prepared in our 5* kitchens.

How do I pay for my care?

You will need to undergo a social services assessment by your local Adult Social Care team to determine the cost of your care, and whether it is to be socially funded or paid for privately. Application for an assessment can be made directly to your local social services department or through your GP.

Do I furnish my own flat?

Yes, flats are let unfurnished so bring all of your furniture and belongings to make it feel like your own home.
