Extra Care Housing

Our purpose built extra care sheltered housing scheme supports older people in maintaining their independence with self-contained accommodation to mobility standards. Extra care housing tailors support and care to our residents’ needs and offers social and recreational activities.

Carers are based at the scheme 24 hours a day, seven days a week and deliver personal care to meet the regularly assessed needs of each resident. Our scheme has an on site manager and 24 hour emergency cover via a community alarm.

Is Extra Care for you?

Extra Care housing could suit you if:

  • You are in need / in receipt of social care and will benefit from living in an extra care environment
  • You have a disability

Our Extra Care scheme

Our extra care scheme in Lambeth is called Helmi House, which offers one and two bedroom flats. The scheme is wheelchair accessible and has a lift. Residents will have their own personal care plan, which is the responsibility of Lambeth Social Services, and a housing support plan, which the care provider is responsible for.

Our scheme provides services such as gardening, communal area cleaning, repairs and maintenance.

How to apply

Our Extra Care schemes are allocated via referrals from Lambeth Adult Social Services who you can call 020 8937 4300.

If you are already a resident of SW9 Community Housing, speak to your Scheme Manager or Neighbourhood Services Officer.

Each referral is assessed for care and support needs.
