Given the choice, most older people would like to remain living in their own home for the rest of their retirement years. We understand that everyone wants to live safely, comfortably and independently. Where this is no longer possible, we want to make sure older people have a range of choices available to enable them to lead as independent life as possible
Extra care housing provides older people with their own home, either rented or part owned (shared ownership), in addition to care and support when it is needed.
Extra care housing is the ideal solution for older people, or disabled people. It offers the freedom to continue living independently within a self-contained property, as a tenant with tenants rights or on a shared ownership basis.
Extra care housing provides little details which are not intrusive which allow people to live in their own home for longer. The door ways are wide enough for a wheelchair. The walls can be fit with grab rails. The wet room allows people with mobility issues the facility for continuing to bathe independently without the risk of getting in and out of a bath.
