Can we help you?

Extra Care Developments


Are you over 55, with a current care need? Our developments offer apartments with a range of support and communal facilities.

What are Extra Care developments?

Our Extra Care developments allow residents to enjoy a healthier, active and independent lifestyle. Apartments are designed to minimise the amount of assistance residents require, however there is also 24/7 access to support in case of emergencies.

Care provision is provided on-site by one provider. This allows residents to build up a good working relationship with carers so that services can be tailored to the individual.

To be eligible for an apartment in one of our Extra Care developments you will:

  • Be aged 55 or over
  • Have a current care need
