Chestnut House is an extra care housing service in Roehampton that provides a place to live for older people who need more care and support. There are 41 purpose-built flats plus communal facilities including a lounge and conservatory, a library/quiet room, assisted bathroom, guest room and gardens. The properties enable residents to remain independent and enjoy the privacy of their own home, but with the added reassurance of extra support.
Extra Care, sometimes known as assisted or supported living, provides service users with access to high levels of care without having to sacrifice all of their autonomy. Our schemes operate in purpose-built properties, which provide accessible and safe housing for older people who are unable to live completely independently. Our skilled and specially trained care worker teams are on site twenty-four hours a day, ready to provide support as and when it is required. Our Extra Care Schemes strike an important balance for service users who require high levels of support but don’t wish to yield all of their independence.
Whilst our Extra Care Schemes have a communal spirit, the care we give our service users is highly personalised. We build tailored care plans which accommodate not just the assessed needs of the service user, but also their unique preferences and aspirations. This enables us to deliver a personalised, outcome-focused service. So, whilst tenants in our Extra Care schemes can access the benefits of their community, they can still count on getting the person-centred care they desire.
