Extra Care Housing

What is Extra Care Housing?

Extra care housing provides 24-hour support for older people who want to remain independent or can no longer live in their own homes.

Extra care housing is purpose built accessible housing that allows people over 55 to stay independent and look after themselves for longer, in their own self-contained home. They offer different levels of care and housing support for people who need support to live independently and is a positive alternative to residential care. 

Extra care housing offers a range of community facilities. For example:

  • - Hairdressers
  • - Restaurants
  • - Communal lounges

They are normally located near to local amenities including:

  • - Shops
  • - Bus routes
  • - Doctor's surgery

Please note that the facilities offered may differ in each scheme.
