The benefits of extra care housing on the quality of life of residents: The impact of living in Campbell Place, Fleet

Cover Case Study no 93

This Housing LIN Case Study no 93 showcases the improved outcomes in the quality of life enjoyed by residents of Campbell Place, a 74 unit extra care housing scheme in Fleet, North Hampshire, developed and owned by Sentinel Housing Association.

Using research based on interviews with residents, the study found that overall they reported improved outcomes in relation to their health, happiness, confidence, social life, relationships with their families and general well-being. The importance to well-being of social interaction, activities and a communal restaurant was striking and supports the case for such activities and facilities to be available as soon as a scheme opens.
