Extra care housing

Extra care housing is housing that gives you support and security without taking away your independence. You have a home of your own, your own front door and a range of activities to take part in right on your doorstep. It is designed to support you to live an active, independent and fulfilling life.

Support you can expect in Extra care housing:

Care staff are on hand 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week, to help support you if and when you need them.

What is the cost?

If you have care needs you might be able to get help with the cost. You might also be able to get housing benefit and council tax exemption. The Access and Response team can help you fill out a financial assessment to see if you are eligible.
