Support that works around you

Extra Care Housing

Sovereign has five Extra Care Schemes for older people with care needs. This means residents can live independently in their own flat, with the reassurance of care staff on site.  There are communal areas for all residents, such as a lounge, to get together for activities and, in some schemes, there is a restaurant. Most schemes will also have a mobility scooter store, laundry room and other facilities such as specialist baths.   The schemes are located in Berkshire, Devon, Hampshire and Oxfordshire.

How does it work? 

We work in partnership with the Local authorities, Adult Services and local care providers so residents can have their care needs met whilst living independently in their own flats in their own flats.  Care teams based at the scheme will visit residents in their flats to deliver care to meet individual needs.  Residents will have a Care Needs Assessment, to provide the right level of care for them.  In some schemes, there is a programme of activities arranged in the communal lounge so that residents can socialise together.

How can I apply? 

Most residents are nominated for a flat by the Local Authority Adult Services Department.  Where there is a joint tenancy one person in the flat should need some level of personal care to help them live independently. Speak to the Local Authority Social Services or contact us directly at for advice. You can’t bid for these properties through the LA waiting list.
