LiveSmart homes for older people

Our LiveSmart homes are designed for people over 55, made up of secure studios, flats and bungalows.

If you’re over 55 and would like to downsize or are planning for your retirement, LiveSmart schemes are the ideal place to do it.

Each LiveSmart scheme has its own manager whose job is to make sure the developments are safe and secure. The manager is available to assist you in your tenancy, with some based on-site and others visiting at set times.

As well as the security of a home alarm that is monitored 24/7, you can enjoy the comfort of communal living. Plus, many of the developments share a programme of social events and activities.

Whilst LiveSmart developments have dedicated staff and enhanced facilities, you do need to be able to live independently. Please note that LiveSmart homes don’t provide support, nursing, or home care.

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 for a LiveSmart home

We advertise a number of our empty homes on Rightmove and Moving Soon, so be sure to visit them regularly. You can share your interest and submit an application via the websites directly.

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

LiveSmart Managers

LiveSmart Managers work to ensure schemes for the over 55’s are safe and welcoming for residents. Residents know the LiveSmart Manager is their dedicated staff member, and the main point of contact for them.

Meet LiveSmart resident, Anne

“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.
