Extra care housing is for those who value their independence but need extra care and support for everyday living. This offers more support than sheltered housing.
Extra care housing is available to those on our Homesearch Housing Register who have an assessed care need. Couples where one person has a care need can still live together. We prioritise those with a local connection and who have limited resources.
Assessments of care needs are performed by Hampshire County Council Adult's Health and Care department.
To request an assessment of your care need, call 0300 555 1386.
We have three extra care housing schemes in the New Forest:
Extra care schemes have their own secure entry, with a care manager and trained care staff available 24 hours. All flats are self-contained and have equipment to call for emergency help. The buildings include a comfortable lounge and shared gardens.
