Extra Care

We’re building homes to meet the future needs of our residents. Our Extra Care schemes provide personalised care, top  notch facilities with a hotel feel and state of the art apartments designed to make our residents’ later years stress free and happy. They’re a long way from a residential care home.

Our scheme staff and care staff are on hand to help whenever needed, with a busy schedule of social events run within our schemes. We offer Extra Care homes for both rent and Shared Ownership.

Regis Gate in Sittingbourne was the first of our modern Extra Care housing schemes, providing high quality self contained apartments for older people.

The Orangery in Sidley brings 52 Extra Care apartments to over 55s in East Sussex.

Our Extra Care schemes have a fantastic range of onsite amenities including:

• An onsite restaurant providing daily hot meals to residents and visitors
• A hairdressing salon and therapy treatment rooms
• Assisted bathrooms
• Guest suites to accommodate visitors
• Organised activities room and communal lounge
• Mobility scooter storage and charging facilities
• Landscaped gardens.

Some parts of the buildings are open to the public, meaning the café, restaurant, hairdressers, therapy and meeting rooms stay busy and vibrant.

But there are private areas of the scheme which are tranquil and secure for our residents and only accessible via electronic fob doors.


Each apartment is fully accessible for wheelchair users and equipped with the latest assistive technology such as fall detection sensors and panic alarms. The wet rooms, kitchen and living areas have been designed with mobility issues in mind.

Level of care available

Extra Care provides 24 hour care and support packages tailored to the needs of the individual. Some residents may need considerable care and support, others little or none. As our residents’ needs change, the care provided changes with them. Extra care really is a flexible system.
