What can I expect at an Extra Care Scheme?
Extra Care housing offers a range of community facilities, although this will differ from scheme to scheme. These can include communal lounges, restaurants, cafés, shops and health services. As well as homes for rent some Extra Care schemes have properties for sale, either outright or on a shared ownership basis.
In St Helens, Extra Care housing provides a home for many older people who require little or no care, as well as those who require more intensive care packages. We work hard to maintain this balanced community at each scheme.
