About Extra Care
Extra Care enables you to have access to lots of facilities and activities, as well as care services 24 hours a day and on site support if you need it.
You can rent, part-buy or even buy a property. They're modern, and set out in a way that means you won’t have to move again due to any support or access issues.
It's not just about somewhere to go when you can't live in your own home, it is your own home! Live the way that you want to with Extra Care.
If Extra Care doesn't appeal to you, and you want to look for someone to help you at home, you can use Staffordshire Cares CareMatch. You can browse hundreds of carers, domestic assistants, gardeners and more and choose the person that's right for you.
