Extra-care housing is designed for people aged 65+ with additional care needs, that enables people to live independently, whilst providing reassurance to friends, and family peace of mind.
It provides the security and privacy of a home of your own, and a range of on-site facilities including hairdresser, kiosk, communal lounge and gardens, and restaurant. Staff are available during the day to support with identified care needs or housing matters, and are available during the day and night to respond to any emergencies.
Is extra-care housing for you?
Are you thinking of moving or leaving your old home because of life changes or health problems that mean it is difficult to remain where you are?
Are you looking for peace of mind that emergency support is available if needed?
Do you prefer to have your own home because you value your independence and privacy?
