Later Living

We provide a wide range of homes across Greater Manchester to specifically meet the needs of older people or people living with a disability.

We asked residents to share their experience of HAPPI later living in the video above.

Later Living for Over 55s

Our independent home living offers:-

  • A scheme manager
  • An appointment-based repairs system which includes evenings and weekends
  • Help and advice on accessing support and benefits
  • A communal lounge and lots of activities such as bingo and coffee mornings, if you want them
  • Security and peace of mind
  • An escape from loneliness

In some circumstances, we may be able to accept people under 55 years of age or for homes with extra care and support please check out our Extra Care homes which offer the independence of living in your own home, but with the reassurance of help and support if you need it.


Our HAPPI Homes are purpose-designed and built specifically for residents aged 55+

HAPPI Homes are:

  • Spacious and Open - getting plenty of daylight and fresh air
  • Highly Energy-Efficient - using cost-efficient, renewable energies where possible
  • Adaptable and ‘Care Ready’ – with facilities built-in and lots of moving space
  • Green and Natural – using plants and trees to enhance the environment
  • IT and Digitally connected – enabling residents to engage and stay connected with news, friends - and the rest of the world!

HAPPI Homes also feature important design elements such as:

  • Easy-access car parking and storage facilities – for belongings like bicycles, mobility and other vehicles
  • Individual balconies where possible and plenty of outdoor space
  • The provision of shared facilities and ‘hubs’, enabling residents to join with each other, when they want to, in all kinds of social, recreational, leisure - and even sporting pursuits.

Have you thought about Rightsizing?

Rightsizing is the process of understanding how you live in your home, un-cluttering your life, and then moving to a new space (often smaller than your previous one) in which you can fully utilise each room, reduce your monthly outgoings, improve your health and wellbeing and increase social connections.
