Extra Care Housing provides a preventative approach to supporting people to retain independence, choice and control and provides a viable alternative to residential care home placements, key elements of Extra Care schemes include:

·        24 hour care and support, available at all times;

·        security of tenure deriving either from an assured tenancy or lease with the right to control access to their own property;

·        independent living by providing individually tenanted and self contained accommodation and services that are tailored to be flexible and responsive to changing need;

·        the option to provide opportunities for social interaction and community engagement;

·        an ethos that promotes self-determination, enabling and independence;

·        a model of supported housing rather than residential care.
