Extra Care

What is Extra Care sheltered housing?

Extra Care Sheltered Housing offers older people an alternative to residential care within a community based setting and aims to maximise independence. It aims to give older people with high levels of care needs the opportunity to remain at home within one of the designated Sheltered Housing Schemes. The care provided is flexible to the needs of the individual.

How do you apply for Extra Care sheltered housing?
