Cardiff to get its first extracare project

Posted on October 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Work is due to start in November 2006 on Cardiff’s first extracare scheme for older people. The development, in Fairwater, Cardiff is being built by Linc-Cymru in partnership with Cardiff County Council and is the first of two being built in Cardiff by Linc-Cymru, which already has two developments of this kind in South East Wales. Consisting of 40 flats, with a mixture of one and two-bed accommodation, the project will allow residents to live independently in their own home, with access to personal care from a team based on site, while enjoying the benefits of high quality affordable accommodation. Additional facilities on site will include a dining room, a hairdressing salon and shop. These will be available to the surrounding community, together with a full programme of social events.
