Extra care housing

What is extra care housing?

Extra care housing supports older people with higher support needs, so that they can live independently in their own home. The extra care scheme provides on-site care and support services to those that require additional help but do not require the intensive support of residential care or that which nursing home provides. The properties are designed to suit most mobility needs and have a 24 hour wellbeing service on site to provide instant help in an emergency.

What extra care housing is available locally?

The Aster Group provides this extra care scheme of 50 flats. 36 flats are available at affordable rents (28 as one bedroom, and 8 as two bedrooms). The remaining 14 two-bedroomed flats are available to buy as shared ownership or open market sale. All are self-contained with their own front door, bedroom(s), lounge/kitchen area and fully accessible bathrooms.

Haydon Court includes communal living by providing a contemporary lounge and hobbies room, an on-site hairdresser, and a restaurant providing a nutritious lunch every day, alongside snacks and beverages.

An on-site care and support team provide personal care and support services to meet individual needs. There is also a 24-hour emergency response service.

Haydon Court is predominately designed for people over 55, who require on-site care and support services. People below this age may make an application to live in Haydon Court, as long as they have a long-term care and support need.

Preference is given to people who have local connections to the Newton Abbot area in the first instance, then the wider Teignbridge District Council area, then the administrative area of Devon County Council.
