Special sheltered/Extra care housing is designed with the needs of frailer older people in mind and with varying levels of care/support available on site. 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 therefore very different from a care home where residents only have a licence to occupy a room. Extra care can help older people remain independent for as long as possible by providing additional care and support in addition to that normally available in sheltered housing. Extra Care can be owned, rented, part-owned/part rented or multi-tenure. The majority of properties are rented and are in schemes managed by Registered social landlords.
