Extra care housing in Blandford, Dorset



<
>

We provide extra care housing services to many of the tenants of the 44 independent living flats at our extra care scheme Trailway Court in Blandford, Dorset.

Someone living at an extra care scheme owns, rents or part-rents their own purpose-built secure, self-contained home, helping them keep their independence.

What is extra care housing?

Through our extra care services, we aim to support you to remain as independent as possible.

Agincare’s extra care services are commissioned by the Local Authority at the different sheltered/extra care scheme locations.

We provide services to people living at or moving to the scheme following appropriate Adult Services assessments of need and financial eligibility.

That means that if you have a tenancy in one of these schemes you may be eligible for support from our teams.

If you are eligible, we may be able to help with:

  • Shopping
  • Housekeeping
  • Personal care
  • Support to attend social activities
  • Help with medication
  • Dementia care
  • Night care
  • Regular welfare calls
  • Responding to emergencies and providing additional pop-in calls and support that may well prevent the need for hospital admission

We have a friendly and professional team of 17 care workers based on site, including two members of staff overnight. The team is always at the end of the phone, offering support 24/7.

We support people who have a range of care needs. Some are bed-bound, while others are receiving end of life care.

We support other Trailway Court tenants with medication checks, personal care or helping them moving around their flat. The level and frequency of support is designed around each person’s needs – everyone is different.

The team is renowned for their cheerful smiles, so much so that one of our clients named the sunflowers he’d grown after members of our team!

Filipe Requixa is the registered manager:

Jo and Kelly are in charge of residents that require care and residents that require support work respectively and I couldn’t do it without them.

If you are a tenant at Trailway Court and would like us to support you, please call our office on 01258 451 227.
