Extra Care

The freedom of living in the community with the security of 24hr support on hand.

What is Extra Care

Extra Care (also known as assisted / independent living) offers onsite care and support but still allows you or your loved on to live independently.


Extra Care promotes social inclusion for all with dedicated communal areas for social engagement. Care Matters Homecare will promote the ethos of Extra Care and ensure we promote the following in our schemes.

  • Positive risk taking
  • A flexible approach to support planning
  • Engagement from our service users in the running of services
  • Encourage and maintain independence at varying levels

Residing in a self-contained flat/apartment with staff available 24 hours per day to provide personal care and support services we develop bespoke care plans based on assessed needs. These plans can include help with washing, dressing, going to the toilet and taking medication, as well as domestic help, such as shopping, cooking, and laundry.

Features of Extra Care

  • Self-contained flats/apartments, with their own front door.
  • Communal lounges allowing you or your loved one to socialise as and when suits.
  • Support from an onsite team of care staff.
  • 24hr emergency help through an alarm system.
  • Scheduled social activities for you or your loved one to access when desired.

With the added reassurance of being regulated by the Care Quality Commission who regularly inspect the facilities and the care services.
