LiveSmart: homes for older people

Our LiveSmart homes are for people over 55. There are studios, flats and bungalows within secure developments.

If you’re looking to downsize, or just planning for your retirement, LiveSmart schemes are the ideal environment.

With over 6,000 Clarion residents living in our LiveSmart housing, they’re a great housing option if you’re over 55.

Each development has its own manager and it’s their job to make sure the environment is safe and secure. The manager is available to assist you in your tenancy, however they don’t provide support, nursing or home care.

On some schemes the managers are based on-site. On others they visit at set times. All homes have an alarm which is monitored 24/7.

LiveSmart gives you the comfort of a communal living environment. Many of the developments also have a programme of social events and activities.

Emergency cover

As a LiveSmart resident, you’ll be asked to provide contact information for your relatives, friends and doctors, so they can be contacted in an emergency.

Apply to us directly

Clarion advertises a percentage of its empty homes on Rightmove and Moving Soon. Please visit these sites regularly in order to view new Clarion adverts. You can express your interest in our vacancies via these websites and then submit an application for the property.

Applications will be prioritised and shortlisted in accordance with Clarion’s Allocations Policy. 

Whilst LiveSmart developments have dedicated staff and enhanced facilities, you do need to be able to live independently.

The managers are amazing: when I need assistance I can contact them. It’s just what you need when you’re on your own.

I’ve been here for about six years and I love it. It’s an absolute treat.

Meet Anne – LiveSmart resident

“I previously lived in a big three-bedroom flat, but after my husband died I needed to downsize. I was aware of families struggling and in desperate need to find somewhere with enough space to live.

“I’ve been here for about six years and I love it. It’s an absolute treat. I have lovely neighbours and a gardener who comes once a fortnight. My home is very comfortable and I have photographs of my family all around me. If I have ever had a problem the service has been excellent and been sorted straight away.”

We have 4,624 LiveSmart homes across the country for people aged over 55. Within each scheme, residents have their own homes and can maintain their independence, safe in the knowledge that help and support are available.
