Independent Community Living Plus

Independent Community Living Plus

Independent Community Living Plus supports you to live independently and provides care tailored to your own requirements.

It gives you the security and privacy of a home of your own, offers a range of facilities on the premises, with care provided by the scheme available 24 hours a day. The aim is to help you live as independently as possible and provide a ‘home for life and provide the care that you need’.

You can view a video made my Norfolk County Council about three different housing options to consider as you get older, but want to keep your independence below:

Independent Community Living Plus is different because:

  • You are living ‘in your own home’ – you remain independent
  • You have your own front door – you can control who comes in and out, you can have family and guests to stay.
  • There is a mix of able and less able people to reflect a true community
  • You can join in social activities if you wish
  • You keep your independence with the added benefit of 24 hour care/support tailored to your needs
  • Support of a Specialist Housing Officer

Typical facilities can you expect to find at a Saffron Housing Independent Community Living Plus Scheme:

  • Restaurant open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
  • Café and/or bar to share a drink and some quality time with your family or friends
