Extra care housing
Extra care housing is designed for people over the age of 55 with care needs, who are able to live independently but require the reassurance of 24-hour support.
We currently have three extra care housing schemes in Southwark, offering 24-hour support, practical and personal care, leisure and recreation facilities, and a safe environment for residents.
If you think that you might need extra care housing, a social worker will carry out an Outcome based assessment to work out what your needs are and if this is the right type of housing for you.
A panel of social care and housing representatives will then make a decision about whether you are accepted for extra care housing.
