Housing options

Supported housing

Supported housing provides disabled people with their own front door, independent living in their own home but on site care and support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Extra care housing

People who live in extra care housing have their own self-contained homes, their own front doors and a legal right to occupy the property. It is a popular choice among older people because it can sometimes provide a positive alternative to a care home. Extra care housing is also known as sheltered housing, assisted living, or 'housing with care'. It comes in many forms, including blocks of flats, bungalow estates and retirement villages.  

Residential and nursing care homes

Residential or nursing homes may be the right option for people whose needs are such that they can no longer be supported in their own home, supported housing, nor extra care housing, and who require 24 hour residential or nursing care to be available.

Residential care

Residential care homes provide care for people who need help with daily activities including washing, dressing, feeding and help with day to day activities.

Nursing care

Nursing homes cater for those who have general care needs and also require input or supervision from qualified nurses. This can include those with specific or complex health needs.
