At ExtraCare we have 30 years’ experience in supporting residents to be as independent as possible, providing the best care only when and if it’s needed.
If you need care and support, either now or in the future, our QCF (NVQ) qualified staff can assess your needs and deliver care in the privacy and comfort of your village home. Care may range from just a daily pop-in visit to regular and more personal help.
Our Village staff team will of course respond in a serious emergency.
Services will be charged as required and costs will vary according to the amount of care needed. Our aim is to provide a flexible, affordable service.
As with all ExtraCare locations, Solihull Village has a Well-being Centre, run by a Well-being Advisor, a qualified nurse who offers health information, screenings and advice about leading a healthy lifestyle. They are able to cover everything from managing illnesses such as diabetes and asthma to sleep advice and staying safe in your own home.
We take a holistic approach to healthcare, choosing to be preventative rather than reactive. Recently, independent research by Aston University proved that our Well-being Service makes a real difference for our residents:
ExtraCare residents’ unplanned hospital stays were reduced from 8-14 days to 1-2 days.
Compared to people living in the local community, our residents had a 46 per cent reduction in visits to their GP over 12 months.
There was a 64.3 per cent reduction in people with significant clinical depression over 18 months.
