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.

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:

Having an extra care scheme under my registration has added a different dimension to my career. An extra care scheme is a cross between a care home and home care, with some residents needing a full package of care, when others just require assistance with day-to-day living.

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.
