Extra Care was established in 1935 to ensure people could live their lives in their own homes. The Charity has changed to meet Service Users’ aspirations and needs but remains committed to a Person-Centered approach that promotes excellence.
Our Purpose is “Giving people the choice to remain living at home through the provision of high-quality care” with a Vision “To be the leading provider of, and champion for, innovative, high quality, cost effective and flexible services.”
The skills and values of our 300 staff across Northern Ireland ensure we are committed to providing Service Users with the support they want to maintain their home and live their life their way.
Most Service Users are older people; however, we also support dependent adults and younger people in their own homes.
As people’s needs change we believe support is at its most effective when delivered in their home where surroundings are familiar, and they are at their most content. We believe this is true no matter what your specific needs may be.
As well as Domiciliary Care we offer Family Carer Training, Assisted Peritoneal Dialysis, re-ablement, prevention services, end of life care and dementia care.
Extra Care’s staff are central to the high standard of care and quality training ensures staff and Service Users are confident every time we visit a home.
We have contracts with Health and Social Care Trusts but also undertake private work based on needs and aspirations.
If you are interested in joining us as a Care Worker, come along to our Open Day and meet with current Care Workers and Managers who will be able to give you a clear picture of what is involved in the Care Worker role. You will be able to complete an application form and have an interview all in the same day. For further information please refer to our website www.extra-care.org
