Extra care housing

1. What is extra care housing?

Extra care housing is housing for older people with care and support needs who wish to continue to live independently. Round-the-clock care is provided on site.

Flats in extra care schemes can either be rented or bought.

Everyone living in extra care housing must have an assessed care and support need. Extra care housing can be considered as an alternative to residential care.
