Whether you’re looking for extra help to continue living in your current home or you want to move to a new home with a support team on-site, we can provide flexible care and support tailored to your individual needs.

Our services for older people

Residential care

We provide 24/7 residential care for older people at schemes across the Midlands, the north, the south and the south-west. While our residential care homes have a specialist focus on supporting people with dementia, we can also provide residential care for older people who don’t have dementia:

Respite care

We also offer respite care for older people who need extra support following an operation or illness, or temporary care while their regular carer takes a well-earned break.

Visit our Respite care page for more information about short-term stays at our care homes.

Extra care

Our extra care services are sometimes known as ‘housing with care’. You’ll be living in your self-contained home, while our expert team is on hand to provide personal care and support when you need it. Our schemes also offer different facilities, which can include restaurants, gyms, hairdressing salons and laundry rooms. You can access the shared facilities at your scheme, while still being able to retain your privacy and independence. 

Supported living

Our supported living complexes are designed for people over 55, who need a little extra help with day-to-day tasks. At these purpose-built communities, you’ll enjoy your own spacious one or two-bedroom apartment within large, well-maintained gardens. 

Home care

We deliver tailored home care to enable you to stay living independently in your own home – whether you need a 30-minute visit to help you prepare a meal, a personal bathing visit or palliative care. Visit our home care page to find out more about the different types of home care we offer and which locations we cover.  

We also provide specialist care and support services for older people living with dementia, ranging from 24/7 residential care to community-based dementia cafés. 

How to access our older people services

We provide both local authority-funded and self-funded services. Usually, you’ll need a referral to access our services from your local authority, GP or social worker.
