In Bridlington there are two 'extracare' sheltered housing schemes owned by housing associations, providing self-contained flats for older people with care needs that wish to live independently.
Portland mews is owned by Hanover Housing and has thirty-six flats for rent. Applegarth court is owned by housing 21 and has twenty-four flats for rent and six for shared ownership; it also offers respite facilities for adults with physical disabilities.
The rent and service charge for these properties are eligible for housing benefit. There is an additional care charge.
Properties are normally available to those over fifty-five years of age, who have a local connection and an assessed need for personal care, and would be eligible to join the council's housing waiting list.
You can apply directly to the housing association.

You can also be nominated by us for these properties. You can obtain a housing application form by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (01482) 393939.
You must make sure that you tick 'yes' to question 8 on the form that asks if you wish to be nominated for a housing association tenancy. If you have a medical need to move you may get additional medical priority.
The first council extracare housing development has been built in Beverley - it's called Rita Hunt Court.
