What is Extra Care Accommodation?

An Extra Care development enables over 55s to enjoy a healthier, active and more independent lifestyle in a community that represents a modern alternative to the traditional care or nursing home. Extra Care Schemes are mixed tenure, meaning there are a number of options available to residents. Residents can rent, buy and/or become a shared owner of Extra Care properties.

Naughton Fields

In 2012, we built our flagship extra care scheme, Naughton Fields, in Widnes.

The development consists of 47 two bedroom apartments and is available for people over 55. The scheme is mixed tenure, which means homes within this scheme are available for affordable rent, private rent, Shared Ownership and outright sale. Naughton has support on site, as well as a bistro, hair salon and a number of communal facilities such as landscaped gardens and a comfy living room.

Barkla Fields

Barkla Fields, our second Extra Care Scheme opened in April 2016.  The £6 million development offers 50 apartments – 32 will be allocated for social housing rent, 12 for shared ownership and six for outright sale, whilst five supported bungalows are also on site. 

Located on Ashley Green (off Dundalk Road) in Widnes, the development offers similar facilities to Naughton Fields, with its own bistro, communal areas and activity room offering a range of social activities and events.
