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.
