Helping local people to live better lives their way

From 1 April 2022, Bolton Cares will be running two Extra Care Housing schemes in Wigan.

Extra Care Housing offers a community within a community and helps people to live independently and be sociable, with additional support or everyday assistance when it’s needed.

Our Extra Care Housing schemes

Working with housing associations and local authorities, we provide care and support in purpose-built accommodation for older people, offering a home-from-home environment, with support on-hand when needed.

You will have access to a wide range of facilities, services and activities, aimed at supporting you to maintain a great quality of life, as well as improving your health and wellbeing.

These include:

  • 24-hour support.
  • Housing-related support.
  • Personal care, such as support with medication and health and wellbeing
  • Meals either assisted or prepared for you.
  • Leisure and recreation activities.
  • Domestic help.
  • Support to build or maintain links with your community.
  • Support to maintain relationships with family and friends.

Our Extra Care Services are all based in the heart of your community, with easy access to local shops, supermarkets and transport routes.

Our accommodation offer consists of self-contained studios and one or two-bedroom apartments that are available for rent. Our Extra Care schemes are designed for people 55 and over that want to make the most of a vibrant social network and live life to the full.

Our on-site dedicated teams can help support with all aspects of day to day living and give people the flexibility and familiarity they need.

Supported Living

Supported Living can help if you’re finding it difficult to cope at home. We help people with a range of needs to retain their independence, lifestyle and be supported in their own home.

We offer a comprehensive range of person-centred care personal and physical care packages, as well as help with practical matters such as budgeting, cooking and developing social skills.

Salford Cares is passionate about the positive outcomes from Supported Living schemes and the ways in which we can support and enable people to live in the community.

Our well-established links with colleges, work placement schemes, community services and leisure facilities can open new opportunities and provide further scope for people to develop their aims and ambitions.
