Retirement villages with a host of social, health and leisure facilities that are accessible to thousands of residents, volunteers and local people. You can rent or buy an affordable home with an inspirational lifestyle and award winning care.
The ExtraCare Charitable Trust is committed to developing inspirational villages for the over 55s, as an alternative to the traditional care home. We enable older people to enjoy healthy, active, and independent lifestyles in their later years.
ExtraCare retirement villages are not just about providing new places to live. They’re about giving their residents a new lease of life. We believe that health, age or financial means should be no barrier to an enhanced quality of life.
If you need care and support it can be assessed and provided in the comfort and privacy of your own Village home. This means that couples can remain together if one partner becomes frail.
We foster an environment of supported independence where residents can take advantage of the social and leisure opportunities provided by the Trust.
Our communities are diverse and fun. Residents can enjoy exciting activities and engage with family, friends and volunteers representing all generations.
Village homes are built and equipped to the highest specifications and with good sized rooms. All homes are protected by a number of safety features, including the village’s closed circuit security cameras. An emergency pull cord in every room connects you 24 hours a day to staff on site who can respond in a serious emergency.
ExtraCare Villages have a superb range of facilities right on your doorstep, so there’s always a choice of things to do.
An ExtraCare Village has its own library and smart IT room with computers, internet access and email. There’s a welcoming coffee shop and friendly bar supported by resident volunteers. If you want to help organise a get-together, a party or a dance, the Village Hall is just the place.
Or perhaps you’d enjoy relaxing in the landscaped gardens, terraced area or just pampering yourself in the beauty salon. An ExtraCare Village has its own restaurant or café bar, convenience shop, hairdresser, a laundry and laundrette, craft rooms and a greenhouse.
The village’s gymnasium has a fully qualified fitness instructor who can offer guidance and instruction.
Each village centre is a social hub for residents and their local communities, welcoming family, visitors and friends from the local area.
