Extra care's priority on independent living distinguishes it from residential care; people live in their own self-contained homes with their own front door. Equally, it is different from traditional sheltered housing accommodation in that residents' health and social care needs require levels of on-site care and support that are not delivered in a traditional sheltered setting.
Extra care schemes offer independence through facilities like a shop, treatment rooms, a hairdressers and communal areas in which residents can congregate and socialise.
