ShireLiving provides independent living for people over 55. The onsite support, care and assistance give residents added security and reassurance. This is sometimes known as extra or flexi care housing.
At ShireLiving we’re here to help you live the life you choose. Make the most of life, make new friends and, above all, make a home.
"I like being independent and I feel very secure." Julia
What is extra or flexi care housing?
Extra care housing offers a new way of supporting you to live independently. It gives you the security and privacy of a home of your own. You will also have access to a range of facilities, and 24 hour on-site support.
"Living here means peace of mind for me and my family. They can stay over when they come to visit." Joan
Extra care housing helps you keep your privacy and independence whilst staying in control of the choices in your life. If you’re thinking about moving, think about extra care.
"I see people every day, and at the end of the day I can lock my door and relax."
