Manager's description

“Are you over 60? Is your home too big for you? Maybe you feel lonely where you live now? Maybe you need some care but want to keep your independence? Would you like to live with other people in the same situation? Growing older but still independent? Whitebeck Court in north Manchester might just be just the place for you! Our Extra Care scheme opened in 2011 and has 91 apartments over 16 floors, all fully refurbished to a very high standard.

Extra Care Housing is for older people who want to enjoy life independently, with access to care and support if they need it. The scheme has a care support team based on-site 24 hours a day. It offers services to people with care needs and can also offer emergency care if needed. This flexible and responsive care service offers peace of mind for tenants and their family. Some residents may move into Whitebeck Court needing very little care or no care at all, but everyone can be confident that even if their circumstances change, their home doesn’t have to!”
