Designing Homes for Extra Care

The Housing Learning and Improvement Network looks at the design process and philosophy behind creating a successful Extra Care scheme. (Video)

The Housing Learning and Improvement Network presents a video on the design process and philosophy behind creating a successful Extra Care scheme for retirees who need that extra bit of support, with a focus on several case study developments with outstanding or innovative features.

We hear from architects and academics helping to shape the future of retirement living, while residents of the schemes speak to the effect a well-designed ‘extra care’ scheme can have on people’s lives.

It’s a great article, it makes my heart happy to see that the older generation is taken care of and treated with respect, it gives me strength and motivation. So after watching this video, I have even more inspiration to master editing and remove bg for video, because there is a bit of hackery in this video, so I want to work on myself so that only high-quality material is available online. Especially when you have a desire to change for the better, plus the understanding that this is your passion.
