Flexicare housing in Hertfordshire

Flexicare housing in Hertfordshire

Flexicare housing is Hertfordshire’s version of extra care, schemes where people rent their own flat, but have access to care and support as and when they need it over 24 hours a day.

Because it meets a wide range of needs, Flexicare is a positive choice for people with a range of needs, from those starting to need a little help with physical or memory problems, to those who are seeking an alternative to residential care.

Tenants are assessed by Hertfordshire County Council for their ability to contribute to costs, so these are in line with cost for home care, and for those with higher needs they are considerably less than residential care.

Because care is available 24 hours a day flexicare can relieve a lot of stress for family carers and tenants – even if you don’t need regular care it can be reassuring to know that someone is there if you fall, or feel ill or unsafe. The level of care and support provided can be changed if your needs change, for example, if you need some extra support after a hospital stay. Flexicare housing is also ideal for couples who have different care needs.

A flat or bungalow in a flexicare housing scheme will have up to two bedrooms and many are spacious enough for wheelchair users. There are also communal facilities and social activities.

Flexicare housing may suit you if you:

  • are finding it hard to cope in your existing accommodation
  • are already receiving home care services
  • have unpredictable care needs
  • have few care needs now but want to prepare for the future.
