The Charity has been at the forefront of the development of the extra care housing model for over 20 years and manages 14 retirement villages and 17 housing schemes across the Midlands and the North.
Each ExtraCare resident (aged 55 upwards) can expect a safe, secure future, living in a spacious and affordable home as part of a network of inspirational communities. Within each community, the Charity is able to offer residents a number of value-added services:
Care and support, delivered in residents’ own homes by the Charity’s qualified, on-site, staff teams. This includes a nurse-led service for residents with predictable nursing needs who would otherwise need to transfer to a nursing home.
A multi-award winning well-being service, which offers preventative health advice and reduces care dependency, and a pioneering ‘Enriched Opportunities Programme’ to support residents who develop dementia.
Sociable village centres
Pioneering village centres with up to 18 facilities including a café, gym and craft room. Each centre provides up to 50 activities a week, social opportunities and community involvement where volunteers and families are strongly represented.
The Charity supports over 4,000 residents with a team of 1,500 staff. ExtraCare also has 60 charity shops which fund life-changing activities for our residents, supporting their health and well-being.
