Extra care housing

Extra care housing supports people who have social care needs to live independently in their own home, whilst maintaining their privacy within an accommodation-based setting. This type of housing is designed to support people to live an active, independent and fulfilling life. 

The scheme provides high quality care and support to adults who have been assessed as having needs that are eligible for social care funding, including those arising from varying degrees of physical frailty, learning disability, mental ill health and cognitive impairment, including dementia, or a combination of these.

Also, care staff are on hand with a flexibility of care available 24 hours a day which can be increased or decreased in response to individual needs.

In Camden, there are five extra care schemes:

Charlie Ratchford Court

Charlie Ratchford Court is a brand new extra care scheme which recently opened to its first residents. It is located at 43 Crogsland Road, NW1 8FA.

Staff at the scheme support the people who live there in a different way to traditional care settings.  They work with people to co-produce their support, focusing on their strengths and what matters to them, rather than the things that they can’t do.  Support is flexible, high-quality and helps people to live as independently as possible.

Charlie Ratchford Court provides 38 flats (32 one bed and six two bed, all with outdoor space).  There is a range of accessible and adaptable facilities and both indoor and outdoor communal space, as well as a shared lounge, a health and wellbeing suite and a guest suite for when family and friends visit.  People living at Charlie Ratchford Court are offered a daily freshly cooked meal.   

When social distancing restrictions lift, a café-style space, courtyard gardens and flexible space will be made available to both residents and the community.  There will also be a programme of activities developed with the people who live in the scheme.
