Extra Care Services

Independent living with a little extra support when required

Ambient offers housing and extra care services for older people who can live independently but may need a few hours of care and support each week. Extra Care provides:

  • Self-contained accommodation designed to offer independence and safety
  • Planned care and support in a person’s own home
  • 24-hour scheduled care and domestic support and alarm system
  • Help to arrange assisted technologies for frail or disabled residents
  • Onsite staff who provide individual assessed care
  • Communal facilities and social activities

Residents who live in our extra care apartments can apply for support via local adult social care services or may pay privately.

The apartments are developed in partnership with a housing association which acts as landlord, while Ambient provides the required day-to-day care and support to people.

Search our older people’s services to find support that’s right for you.
