Does Extra Care Housing work well for people?
Read more FAQS
Extra Care Housing works well for many people. Surrey’s existing Extra Care Housing provision has provided accommodation with care and support for many older people over a number of years, enabling them to live as active members of their local communities.
• Extra Care Housing is designed to overcome challenges with our existing accommodation:
• changing resident expectations including high demand for self-contained flats which aren’t always readily available
• older properties which cannot accommodate changes to residents’ care and support needs over time e.g. for wheelchair accessibility and lifts; and
• the need for facilities that maintain privacy and dignity e.g. ensuite bath/shower rooms.
