Extra Care Housing

Our Promise

We vow to always provide innovative, personalised and high-quality care. Your choice, your support and your way.

Independence

If you or a loved one want independence but with a little help here and there, we provide high-quality housing where you can feel right at home. We’ll check in on you for wellbeing, personal skills and practical help, but the rest we leave up to you!

TESTIMONIAL

Growing older does not have to mean losing all independence; choice and control are at the core of our Extra Care residents’ support, meaning they can live happy and fulfilled lives into old age.

Catalyst Choices’ Extra Care Housing provision provides care and support to older adults in specially-designed accommodation, meaning they can remain independent while benefitting from daily check-ins, social events, and activity and leisure opportunities.   

Spend your retirement in the place you choose, doing things you enjoy, with support from a team that’s there for your needs. 

Susanne's Story*

Susanne arrived at Mosslands Extra Care Housing low in mood and in self-confidence, having suffered from a stroke which left her with one-sided body weakness, slurred speech and a mild cognitive impairment. As a previously extraverted lady, Susanne was very conscious of her difficulty with speech, and was determined to overcome this alongside her physical recovery. 

With continuous support from the Catalyst team, Susanne quickly settled into life at Mosslands and her speech and mobility improved with each week that passed. Susanne originally required four visits a day to her home by Catalyst staff, ensuring she was safe and well, but now, thanks to Susanne’s growing independence and stability, these visits are increasingly scarce with each day that passes. 

Susanne is most delighted with her newfound freedom, which is thanks both to her new mobility scooter, and the introduction by the team to her neighbour, Peter, who showed her around the local amenities, including the shops and the all-important pub! Susanne now travels there independently on a regular basis and is enjoying an active social life and a new outlook on her future. 

Susanne’s Care Team lead, xxxx, said: Susanne is so fondly thought of by Catalyst staff, and her progress is testament to both her own determination and the excellent wraparound care the team has provided. By working with a range of external health and care services, the team has ensured Susanne is making great progress in her recovery and can now be excited for her future! 

*Not their real name

**In this story, the Catalyst Extra Care team demonstrated our organisation-wide commitment to collaboration by linking up to local networks (such as Susanne’s neighbours and friends) and establishing vital and long-lasting support networks for her.  

The team took ownership of their roles, by ensuring the support plan was followed consistently and carefully, and the results have been exceptional.

About Woodleigh

RESIDENTIAL
Based in Callands-Warrington, our purpose-built home at Woodleigh provides the highest quality home-from-home experience for older adults, adults in rehabilitation and those who require specialist dementia care. We are a friendly and vibrant community, with several events running every week by our experienced and caring team, designed to keep us moving and entertained while getting the full-time care we need.

With 39 beds on offer, Woodleigh provides CQC-rated ‘good’ quality care for people who need support with daily living activities from staff who are highly trained. A sense of belonging and fun is fundamental to our mission and each household unit offers a warm, comfortable shared living experience.

The service and the homely environment are designed for people to maintain their independence, achieve their goals and to build on meaningful and long-term relationships with other residents.
We also offer intermediate care through our ‘mini stays’ service, which provides the opportunity for recovery and rehabilitation through a planned programme of care and treatment. The aim of the service is to support discharge from hospital and living in their own homes to maximise independence, promote wellbeing and to prevent unnecessary readmission into hospital. 

SHORT BREAKS
We are also proud to provide Short-Break services at our Woodleigh home. We offer full-time opportunities for adults with a physical disability, learning disability or autism, aimed at carving out a rich quality of life and varied experiences.

We will also support individuals to transition into adult services as we are with you every step of the way. We know it can be a little daunting, so this is why we can also offer taster sessions for those who might be planning to move into supported accommodation but have never spent a night away from their family.
