Extra care housing in Nottinghamshire
A form of sheltered housing for people who need some support.
Extra care housing in Nottinghamshire offers:
Privacy, independence and security – you have the freedom to live your life how you wish, in your own home with your own front door; you can come and go as you please.
Control and choice – you keep complete control over your finances. Dependent on the accommodation on offer within each scheme, you can rent, buy or part own your home.
Support and flexibility – support is on hand to help you with everyday care and support tasks. The support provided is tailored to your own situation and changes according to your needs.
Stability – if your needs become greater, you don’t have to move to get more support, as the care offered by the on-site care team can change according to your needs.
Sense of community – communal areas allow you to easily socialise with other residents and join in group activities.

Within each designated extra care housing scheme in Nottinghamshire, we have nomination rights to a number of units of accommodation to be used as an alternative to residential care.
To be considered for one of our extra care housing schemes, you will need to be assessed by the Council as being eligible for social care support and requiring extra care accommodation. Residents will usually be aged 65 years and over, although in some circumstances, we may consider younger people for extra care housing.
