Extra Care Accommodation

The Withens

The new scheme at The Withens includes the development of 64 apartments for Extra Care (5 x two bed, 59 x one bed) and has been designed using the principles of intentional communities – integrating the facility with the wider community so it can be used by the community and draw on the community for additional support.

Especially designed for customers who want an easy to manage and secure home with access to the care and support they need, or may need in the future.

Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council decide who is entitled to live in Extra Care. The Extra Care Team will complete a care needs assessment of individuals who want to apply.

Customers who are eligible for Extra Care could receive the following support:

  • Security and peace of mind 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with a dedicated and experienced on site Care Team and state of the art security system
  • Flexible support packages including; help with personal care, medication, preparing meals, cleaning and laundry
  • Regular social opportunities in the communal lounge area and delicious fresh and healthy meals prepared for you in the spacious cafeteria
  • Landscaped garden areas with seating, providing a tranquil place to relax and on site car parking facilities

There will also be 26 bungalows on the development and these will be available for affordable rent. Applicants will need to have a supported or low level care need.

Please contact us via the form below if you feel you or a family member would benefit from additional support. A member of the Older Persons Service will contact you within 5 working days of receiving your enquiry and will complete and initial screening with you to support your application.

Your details will then be shared with Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council who will carry out an adult social care needs assessment to see if you are eligible. The completion of this enquiry form does not guarantee an extra care scheme.
