New Type Of Support Housing Opens In Aylesbury

6:16am 26th April 2012

A new and affordable extra care housing scheme for people aged over 55, is officially opened in Aylesbury today.  

The Elms, a partnership project between Buckinghamshire County Council, Housing Solutions, and Hightown Praetorian Churches Housing Association, will provide accommodation for up to 30 people over the age of 55. It is the first scheme of it's kind in the county, aimed at achieving extra care housing for 500 people by 2026.

The scheme, allows people to rent their own accommodation, and have care provided on site by a team of staff. Care can be tailored to individual needs, and support a range of different levels and requirements. All residents are eligible for care and support from the County Council.

The Elms is an eco-friendly and energy-efficient building, the first one that Housing Solutions has built to incorporate a combined heat and power station, and discrete technology for the care and safety of the residents.

Extra Care Housing is a crucial element of Buckinghamshire's twelve year housing plan for people with support needs, and responds to the significant demographic pressures of a growing ageing population in Buckinghamshire.
