Extra care

Extra care is a modern housing initiative designed to provide independent living combined with flexible care options. Specifically for the over-55s, it is a cost-effective way of remaining independent in your own home while having access to personalised on-site care if it is needed. Extra care provides independence without isolation.

Typically, an extra care development consists of one and two bedroom apartments within a secure and attractive complex. All developments offer luxurious surroundings and benefit from having a range of facilities, such as an on-site restaurant, residents' lounge, activities room, and hairdressing salon.
