Extra Care housing
Extra Care housing is the latest development in care for older people, offering a secure place to live but with care and support on hand.
Extra Care housing offers individual one or two bedroom flats within a larger development. and care and support services available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Extra Care also has the benefit of allowing couples, who may have very different care needs, to stay together.
The schemes are for older people, usually in their 70s and 80s. However, all schemes are different and some cater for a wider age range.
For many people, Extra Care is the ideal solution as they can have their own home, but with the added reassurance that help is at hand. Extra Care also allows people to move out of houses, where they are finding it difficult to cope, into a home where they can be secure and live independently.
