‘Extra Care’ is the term we use to describe the care and support you receive whilst living in an ‘Extra Care’ home. A home designed especially with later-life in mind.
Extra Care apartments enable older people requiring a minimum of 5 hours care a week to live independently, with a care and support team on site 24/7.
The apartments are set within a specially designed ‘Extra Care’ housing scheme where you can maintain or regain your independence.
You will have the extra reassurance that comes from knowing that a care and support team are on hand in emergencies.
All of our extra care accommodation is self-contained with its own front door, kitchen, bathroom, heating, bedroom(s) and pull cord system. The properties are either two bed or one bed.
