Why Care Providers and Landlords Make Great Partners

26th June 2024

The world of supported living is all about empowering people to live life to the fullest, no matter their circumstances. Providing quality care and housing isn't easy - it takes creativity, resources, and smart collaborations.

That's where partnerships between supported living providers and property owners come into play.

More Housing Options for Care Receivers

One of the biggest struggles in supported living is finding appropriate housing for the individuals being cared for. But when care providers team up with landlords, it opens the door to more properties across different neighbourhoods. That means care receivers have a better chance of living somewhere that suits their lifestyle and needs.

Steady Income for Landlords 

For property owners partnering with a supported living operator leads to stable, long-term rental income. No more dubious tenants or voids. Care providers make for extremely reliable long-term renters since housing is crucial for their services.

No Need for Upfront Property Purchase

Buying property is a major investment. For some care businesses this is too big an outlay for their business, but by leasin a property from a landlord they do not need to tie up capital in a new house purchase upfront.

Tailored Spaces for Care

Supported living often requires specific home modifications to accommodate disabilities or unique care needs. Landlords can make these tweaks (like make adaptations like ramps or sensory-friendly rooms) as part of their partnership with care providers to create customised living spaces.

Strengthening Local Communities

When care receiver housing is integrated within residential neighbourhoods, it helps break down barriers and fosters close-knit communities. Landlords play a part in making their area more inclusive by housing care providers.

At the end of the day, supported living partnerships are a win-win.

Care providers get quality housing for their clients, and landlords get stable tenants and income. It's a simple way for two parties to team up, reduce risks, and make a real difference in their communities.

The future of care is collaborative, and property owners have an opportunity to be part of the solution.
