Extra care housing

Extra care housing is purpose built, rented apartments and bungalows for people aged 55 years and over, or younger if you have a disability.

Extra care housing enables you to live independently for as long as you can by giving you the security and privacy of your own home, plus a range of facilities on-site, and 24-hour care services available when needed.

Most extra care schemes have a mix of more independent and able residents together with those who are very frail.

Some will be getting a lot of care and support; others will be living fairly independently.
