They are being run through a partnership between local firms and the Trident Reach charity, which provides support services at Oakland Village and is responsible for the day-to-day running of the sheltered scheme.
Richard Bullock, hospitality manager for Trident Reach, said: "It is the first time Trident Reach, as a charity, has managed such social enterprises on a large scale.
"The idea is to create a village where everything is on the doorstep."
Oakland Village has 88 apartments and a specialist residential care centre with 32 beds for people needing extra support.
