Property charges

Contrary to popular belief, retirement villages can be surprisingly affordable, and can offer a range of financial benefits that traditional housing options may not provide.


With a fantastic range of village activities on site there is always something to do

Resident story

The staff are absolutely fantastic. They’re a delight to associate with and since we’ve been here they could not have been more helpful. I’ve got nothing but compliments for them, and they do it with a smile as well which is so important!

Affordable living

Social rented properties

We offer a proportion of social rented properties across our locations.

These are allocated jointly with the local authority. A local Council will have a policy on who qualifies for social housing and who gets priority for this in the area, please contact the local Council directly to find out about eligibility.

Unfortunately we do not offer private rental or sub letting on any of our properties.

Care & wellbeing

ExtraCare takes pride in providing exceptional retirement care services for those who need it. Our care services include assisted living support, well-being support, and dementia care. Have a watch of the video to find out more.

Find out more about our Care and Wellbeing services here.

Affordable living

At ExtraCare we assist our residents to maximise their income through identifying benefits and assistance they may be missing out on.

The following costs associated with Village residency may be eligible for support through the Welfare Benefits System:

  • Housing costs of a shared ownership or rental property
  • The provision of care
  • Weekly charges

Our Welfare Benefits Advisors can advise, in confidence, about a resident’s entitlements. In some rare cases, levels of benefit entitlement may be insufficient, but our Welfare Benefits Team is able to complete an affordability assessment with you to offer guidance and support.

In 2022/2023 our advisors saved residents over £5.8M and supported 70% of residents to receive what they are entitled to.
