You are here: Westlea home > Over-55s accommodation and services

We own and manage over 600 homes in Wiltshire for people aged 55 or over; this accommodation provides a safe and secure environment for residents whilst promoting independent living.

Residents in our over-55s accommodation are linked to a central alarm system, which provides 24-hour emergency help every day of the year. And our staff work with residents to develop individually-tailored support services and to offer them greater choice.


Westlea works to reach out to vulnerable older people in the community – we have reviewed our services to check how well they meet their particular needs. We established our Older Persons’ Forum in 2005 as one way of ensuring feedback and promoting customer involvement in the development of our services.

We offer assistance to residents who need help managing their garden and arrange for home adaptations (walk-in showers, for example) to make life easier.

And older people have also benefited from Westlea’s involvement with the eWiltshire project – broadband internet access points at two of our over-55s housing schemes have generated new enthusiasm for learning about, and using, new technology.

older people

The service we offer to older people – including those living in over-55 accommodation – is delivered by:

  • support workers, who give individual help to each customer; and
  • scheme coordinators, who look after the over-55 accommodation buildings and arrange events.

For full details, please see our 'Support Service for older people' leaflet - supplied here as a PDF file.
