Extra care housing can provide an alternative to residential care, nursing care, supported living and sheltered housing.

It aims to provide ‘a home for life’ for many people even if their care needs change over time.

For more information have a look at Your Care Your Support.


There are pieces of equipment like lifelines, pendant alarms, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and many others that can help you to remain safe at home, 24 hours a day. 

The council and the NHS have one company to provide this equipment across the county. This company is Medequip-UK, working with Aster Living.


If you or someone living in your property is permanently disabled you may qualify for a disabled facilities grant.

This grant helps with the cost of providing adaptations and facilities to enable the disabled person to continue to live there. 

These grants are given by the Council under Part I of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 and are means tested except in the case of adaptations for children.

Some people require higher levels of support in their housing.
The council can assess and provide referrals to different types of supported accommodation, such as young family units or supported mental health accommodation.

There is a wide range of supported accommodation in Wiltshire, which may be suitable for you if you require assistance to live independently.

The majority of referrals to supported accommodation need to be made through our Housing Options teams. Although some supported properties accept self-referrals, it is a good idea to get in touch with the Housing Options teams if you are interested in this type of accommodation.

If you feel that you don’t need supported accommodation, but would like access to some support in dealing with accommodation and housing issues, you can contact the Housing Options teams.


Sheltered housing is housing for people aged over 50.

Sheltered housing schemes provide different levels of support, from independent homes with lifeline services to warden-managed housing schemes.
