Older people



Great Places offers residents a wide range of Sheltered and Extra Care housing across the Fylde coast, Salford and Manchester. This is for people aged 55 and over who would like to live independently in a home which is easier to manage. All our schemes create a community spirit within a safe environment, and boast self-contained apartments with either one or two bedrooms.

Peace of mind is paramount for all our residents, and each apartment has a direct link to either an on site care team and/ or a control centre with help available in an emergency day and night.

Each scheme also has a dedicated scheme manager based on site during office hours, who will provide support and advice to residents to help them live independently.

In addition to these services, our Extra Care housing provides 24/7 on-site care and packages to suit ever-changing needs and provides a real alternative to residential care.
