Extra Care Housing

What is Extra Care Housing?

If you need a little more assistance to help you continue to live independently, an Extra Care Housing estate may be the right option for you. Move into one of these properties and you’ll have your own high quality spacious and modern home, with the reassurance of care and support from an on-site 24-hour team of professionals.

Estates typically have 40+ self-contained one and two bedroom properties. Alongside the dedicated on-site care team, you'll benefit from a restaurant providing freshly prepared meals seven days a week.

Our Extra Care Housing properties typically offer:

  • Shared lounge facilities
  • En-suite bathroom with walk-in easy access shower
  • Fitted kitchen
  • Your own open plan lounge and dining room
  • Good sized bedroom(s) with excellent storage
  • Laundry
  • Hairdresser/beauty therapist
  • Cycle/scooter store
  • Gardens


Some of our Extra Care Housing estates also have a guest room - perfect for when friends or family come to visit.

Support services

Although Hanover doesn’t provide personal care services directly, we can provide help and advice on the best ways for you to access local care services. Further information about support services is available on our Access to care page.

Pets policy

We know how important pets can be and that’s why we have a pet-friendly policy. In recognition of our commitment to maintaining pet friendly properties, the RSPCA has awarded Hanover its prestigious Silver Community Animal Welfare Footprint. These awards are part of a scheme designed to celebrate, promote and reward the work of housing providers in a number of areas that have an impact on animal welfare.

You’re welcome to bring your pet with you to live in your Hanover property, although you should check this with your local estate manager first. Full details of our policy can be found in our Pets helpsheet.
