Housing with flexible care and support

Our extra care housing provides residents with tailored care and support so they can live as independently as possible. This includes short term care for those leaving hospital. We also offer on-site facilities and flexible care packages to help customers continue to live in their own homes, even as their needs change.

All our services are focused on helping older people maximise their independence and reduce, delay or prevent the need for residential care. 

To apply to live in extra care housing, please contact your local authority.
