Housing with care

Extra Care Housing is defined as a sheltered scheme, housing with support from a scheme manager, but with the addition of a 24 hour on-site care team and other communal facilities such as a restaurant service.

In order to apply for Extra Care Housing, tenants must have both a housing need and a need for personal care services. This means that applications for extra care are managed by a joint panel comprising the landlord, social services representatives and the representatives from the council's housing department.

All applications are managed by the Extra Care Services Manager at Moorlands Court to see our Extra Care housing brochure click here
