Extra care housing

Extra care housing is an alternative to traditional residential care offered in Warwickshire. People who live in Extra Care Housing have their own self-contained flats, their own front doors and a legal right to occupy the property. Extra Care Housing is also known as very sheltered housing, assisted living, or simply as ‘housing with care’, with 24-hour care available on site. Extra Care often includes communal areas such as a restaurant or dining room, hairdresser’s or fitness facilities, that can be accessed by the whole community.
