Extra Care is a not for profit organisation with charitable status. Our mission is to provide ‘innovative, high quality, flexible services so that people have the choice to remain living at home with dignity.’ We are a vibrant modern organisation, always willing to listen to improve and to put our service users at the centre of what we do. This approach has sustained us through a long tradition of providing high quality care in people’s homes dating back to 1935.
Extra Care is the largest provider of care at home in Northern Ireland. We provide a range of services that respond to the needs of older people, dependent adults and children who are cared for at home in all areas of Northern Ireland. We also have services that support families and carers. We are based in Antrim in a purpose built facility that has a training/meeting room that will hold up to 30 people theatre style, 15 boardroom. We can also offer training appropriate to this industry including Moving & Handling, Dementia awareness, medication and many others.
Our services are also available in the North Eastern area of the Republic of Ireland.
At Extra Care, we focus our efforts on local recruitment; we provide comprehensive training and regular supervision through our local community teams. We look after our staff, and they know their contribution is valued.
We care for some of the most vulnerable people in our society and we believe part of our role is to try and make their voices are heard, to help give people that are being cared for at home a greater profile when decisions over resources are being made.
