The Extra Care Scheme encourages independent living through a combination of specially designed housing developed with 24 hour care and support. This gives peace of mind that help is on hand for emergencies at any time and provides a more flexible delivery of service to suit your needs. It can offer over 55's with care and support needs an alternative to moving into a residential care home.
The experience of moving into Extra Care accommodation is that of a house move and tenants are required to furnish their flats to their own taste. All tenants have a tenancy agreement and pay rent to Six Town Housing. The benefits of Extra Care include the ability of residents to combine maintaining their privacy and independence with the availability of support and companionship if required.
There are currently two extra care schemes available, Falcon and Griffin and Redbank, the information booklets can be found in the downloads on the right.
