Extra Care Housing

What is extra care housing?

Extra care housing is an extension to traditional sheltered housing for people aged 55 and over. It gives you the opportunity of living as independently as possible with the reassurance that you can get help if you need it. The self contained purpose built flats are designed for older people. There is no feeling of living in an institution or to someone else's schedule.

Extra care housing enables you to:

  • live independently in your own home
  • have access to 24 hour care and support services
  • be part of a community
  • have security – the aim is a home for life
