Extra Care Housing – an alternative to residential care

Extra Care Housing offers service users a private home with their own front door but with all the support provided by a residential home.

Extra Care Housing is a broad spectrum where, at one end, will be the creation of purpose built schemes where all flats will be built to full disability standard with a dedicated care team on site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  At the opposite end of the spectrum, additional home care and community support may be provided to existing sheltered housing schemes underpinned with a close working relationship with Housing Warden Services.
