About Phoenix House

Phoenix House is a purpose-built development of 49 affordable extra care apartments for rent and shared ownership in Shirley, Solihull.

Extra care housing is intended to provide an independent lifestyle within a safe, supportive and secure environment.

A full-time, non-resident scheme manager, together with a dedicated team of staff trained to meet your care and support needs, will give you, and your loved ones, complete peace of mind regarding your safety and wellbeing.

Eligibility for the scheme

The scheme is intended primarily for people aged 55 and over, or those with a disability, who live in the Solihull area or have a strong connection with the area, e.g. close family members living in the Borough.

To apply for an apartment you must have care needs and be willing to take part in a community care assessment which will identify your level of need.

Shared ownership apartments will be available to people who meet the age/disability and locality criteria, who are suitable for the service, and who would benefit from the on-site care, safety and security that this type of accommodation can offer.

Extra Care Services A non-resident Scheme Manager, employed by Solihull Care Housing Association will oversee the smooth running of the scheme.
