Living in an extra care housing scheme gives you care and support to help you live independently.

Our purpose-built rented accommodation includes one and two-bedroom self-contained apartments. You have your own private living space with a team on site to manage the property and provide care and support when you need it.

There are also shared facilities that you can use and enjoy, such as:

  • Lounges and dining rooms
  • Laundry
  • Garden

We have the following Extra Care Housing schemes in Bournemouth:

  • Hibberd Court, Ensbury Park
  • Kingsley House, Moordown

We have additional Extra Care Housing schemes which offer low, medium and high level support and are banded in accordance with your support needs.   

  • Brushett House, Draper Road, Kinson
