Fire alarm system in sheltered housing

Our sheltered flats have smokes in every room and a heat in the kitchen. In some flats we have had multiple issues. It may be that we will have to disconnect and just have detectors in the hallway and bedroom. First I want to try reconnect all sensors but disconnecting the link between sensors so only the offending sensor activates.

I have tried to Google for further information on what the BS5839 states and it said somewhere that they do not advise disconnecting the link between detectors. Can you advise if this is the case? I am trying to make sure we are legally covered in the event of an incident whilst trying to take a common sense approach with the residents needs but I am struggling for guidance.

Can you advise us on the best approach?
