Extra Care Housing
What is Extra Care Housing?
Extra care housing is for older people over 55 who have an eligible care need and who want to remain as independent as possible. An extra care scheme generally has self-contained flats with 24 hour care and support on site. There is access to communal facilities, social activities and assistive technology such as telecare alarms. In Gosport there are two extra care schemes, Juniper Court and Spinnaker View. Both schemes have a restaurant, an activity room, hairdressers/barbers and a range of social activities on offer each week. Care and support at the schemes is provided by established quality care providers and there is a full time housing staff member on site.
