Extra care housing gives you a balance between living at home and having on-site, dedicated care available if you need it.
You live in a self-contained property, not in a residential home, and you have your own front door, so you can decide who comes in. This means that you keep your independence.
There is also a dedicated care team on-site. If you have had a care needs assessment, you can get care and support from the on-site team. The type and amount of care you receive will change as your needs change over time.
Some more benefits of extra care housing are:
- couples and friends can stay together
- you keep your independence
- you can join in social activities
- you have control over your finances
- you have security and peace of mind
- you have a home for life
