What is Extra Care?
Our Independent living homes offer you an accessible and affordable home that can also give you peace of mind that support is available when you need it.
Most independent living homes benefit from both indoor and outdoor communal areas such as lounges, gardens and grounds for you to share with others and spend time in throughout the year. With services like monitored door entry systems and independent living officers on hand at designated times through the week to assist you, we can help you to live well and maintain your independence, within a community that has lots to offer.
We offer both Extra Care and Independent living housing.
Our Extra Care homes allow you to access care services in your own home, enabling you to continue to live independently while receiving regular care from our onsite care provider. In many of our schemes you can expect:
- Care team available for personal care services
- Private home and shared communal areas
- Each scheme has a monitored door entry system
- Visiting Independent Living Officer
- Option for further telecare help through our Connected Living Service
- Regular home visits to ensure you can have the right tools to maintain your tenancy
We provide and maintain affordable housing for people with a range of needs.
As well as your rent, our customers pay a service charge each month that helps to maintain the services provided within our homes. This charge includes grounds maintenance, cleaning and the upkeep of social communal areas both inside and outside around the schemes. It also allows us to provide you with the ongoing support of an independent living officer.
