Senior housing or assisted living facilities?
Many property companies have senior housing or assisted living facilities for people that can no longer live in regular housing.
Senior housing are apartments that are specially adapted for the elderly. Senior housing is not the same as sheltered housing or assisted living accommodation. You must be at least 55 years of age to join the queue for senior housing. An assisted living facility is housing that provides extra security and community for people that are 70 years of age or older.
If you need support or have other questions contact the guide for the elderly, phone 013-206401
