Over recent years, the concept of extra care living has become increasingly more high profile and offers a unique solution to the evolving needs of a growing, aging population, some of whom have specific care requirements.

Extra Care Schemes provide a supportive environment that supports independence and wellbeing for residents by offering:

  • Tailored Support and Assistance
  • Enhanced opportunities for Independence
  • Assistance from trained staff
  • Company and a community atmosphere
  • Safety and Security
  • Aging in Place
  • Holistic Approach to Wellness

Over recent years Wilkinson Cowan have played a vital role in the delivery of numerous Extra care Schemes in the Northwest, including the Watchfactory with Livv Housing Group and Keswick Close with Riverside.

Typically, we deliver Employers Agent, Principal Designer and Clerk of Works Services, to ensure that developments are not only delivered smoothly and professionally, but that they meet health and safety regulations.

2024 is looking extremely promising in terms of bringing more much needed extra care living to fruition, with more projects in the pipeline.
