Letting you enjoy your retirement

Rooftop has a selection of independent living and ExtraCare accommodation available for people aged 55 and over, and for those with a disability. 


This accommodation offers people with special requirements extra help and independence in a supportive and secure community, whilst giving them the freedom to enjoy their own home, which may be specially adapted.


There are additional communal facilities including hobby rooms, laundry facilities, lounges, dining areas, disabled bathing facilities, guest bedrooms and some office space.  Social events, craft classes, talks and health and wellbeing events are organised throughout the year for everyone to enjoy, including family, friends and people living in the community.

Our Older Peoples developments

Our independent living and extracare developments are located around Worcestershire and Gloucestershire with schemes located in Evesham, Pershore, Bredon, Gloucester, Coleford, Redditch and most recently in Broadway. 

What is different

about retirement living?

Our schemes are special because of the facilities they offer. Our approach is based on the principles that age, health and financial means, shouldn’t be a barrier to enjoying a high quality of life in later years.

These developments are based around the creation of a communal centre that provides places to meet and socialise. There are an enormous range of activities available from arts and craft, woodwork, gardening to health and well-being activities.

Customers are at the heart of what we do and there are amazing people living in Rooftop Homes.

Retirement Living with Care

We work with several partners including the Extracare Charitable Trust, Heritage Care and Radis Community Care to offer six bespoke retirement schemes in Evesham, Gloucester, Redditch, Coleford, Pershore and Broadway.

We choose partners who share our vision to create better lives for older people.
