The difference between extra care and care enabled housing

Holdenhurst is our new development of 48 affordable rental apartments, offering enhanced sheltered housing. This means that you live independently but can take additional services if you need them. This helps to future-proof your move, enabling you to stay in your own home for longer.

Extra care and our care-enabled approach at Holdenhurst

One of Holdenhurst’s special features is that is a care-enabled complex. This means that should you need it, care can be brought in from outside providers. Traditionally, extra care means that your ‘landlord’ organises care for you onsite, but our approach leaves you free to take the services you choose to allow you to live active, fulfilling and happy lives.

The important thing is that Holdenhurst is enabled for care, so the environment is set up to make care possible, but not compulsory.

Why living in a care-enabled home may be the best move you ever make

Living at Holdenhurst would benefit any lifestyle as you could move in at a younger age and live independently or with some help around the home. It’s your choice! Holdenhurst could be your forever home as it could accommodate any changes you would like to make to your lifestyle, perhaps as your needs change as you age. We are confident that a move to Holdenhurst could be the best decision you’ll ever make.
