Extra care supported housing

Extra care housing is similar to sheltered housing in that the accommodation usually consists of individual, self-contained flats, each with its own front door. 

The difference is that the level of personal care available is much higher than in sheltered housing and can be arranged according to individual needs.  Care can include things like domestic support, help with meals, as well as opportunities for a range of social and leisure activities.

Extra care can be a good option if you need the security having care staff on-site 24 hours a day but do not want to lose the independence of living in your own home.
