If you require support with personal care and daily activities and your present accommodation is not suitable any more, but you want to keep the independent lifestyle you currently enjoy, then Extra Care housing might be the answer you are looking for.
You can rent or buy your property, and there are a number of locations around the city to choose from. Flats are usually one or two bedrooms, fully accessible with emergency pull cords fitted, that link to an onsite care team for your peace of mind.
Facilities usually include a communal lounge or dining area, where you can socialise with other residents, gardens and some properties have services such as day centres, laundry services and hair salons on site.
All Extra Care properties are fully accessible.
There are three elements to the cost of Extra Care Housing:
The cost of buying, part-buying, or renting your new property.
The cost of running your new home, like utilities and service charges.
The costs of your personal care and support services.
