Sheltered homes providing extra care

What is extra care housing?

Extra care housing schemes provide a higher level of support than traditional sheltered housing.

​An extra care housing scheme is a group of flats built on the same site, providing specialised accommodation with care and support services on hand 24 hours a day.

How are they different to care homes?

  • you have your own self-contained homes
  • you have legal rights to live there
  • couples are able to stay together
  • you can come and go as you choose, in the same way you would if living in the community
  • the provision of care and support is separated from the provision of accommodation
