The Care Annex Company – what we do
Our unique steel framed care annexes bring together the advantages of precision built factory construction with the latest technologies available in the care sector – all in a building that arrives by lorry and is lifted into place by a crane.
Each Care Annex is designed around your requirements and budget, offering a fixed price solution for the long term care market.
The Care Annex is suitable for family care, the established care home sector and the wider NHS/County Council market where, if necessary, multiple units can be linked. The Care Annex units can be supplied to meet the demands of a range of age, dependency and medical conditions. This could range from someone who still enjoys independent living through to more severe complex needs. We are also able to offer an enhanced bariatric unit with a hoist capacity up to 454kg (71st) as a viable option to expensive and disruptive works in existing buildings – and being modular it can be moved between locations!
What is the Care Annex suitable for?
Family Care Market
as an option to expensive care homes where families want to oversee the provision of care for a family member. The Care Annex provides a cost effective alternative to a traditional home extension or reconfiguration of an existing dwelling – each of which can be disruptive, costly and take many months to deliver. The Care Annex is built off-site and delivered ready for occupation.
Established Care Sector
suitable for established care homes that may require additional accommodation or specialist units i.e. bariatric and dementia units for example, to expand the range of services available. The Care Annex can also be moved between residential homes as demand for these services change.
NHS / County Councils
as an option to new build or in the case of bariatric use, to avoid major works within an existing operational site i.e.hospital/residential care home. The annex is portable and can be moved between sites as demand requires. The Care Annex reflects the growing need to deliver more healthcare within the community.
the Care Annex can deliver ready built disabled and specialist care accommodation for the hotel, B&B, holiday cottage, caravan and lodge market where internal conversations can be very costly and disruptive. The market for the disabled and care requirements known as the ‘Purple Pound’ has huge potential within the leisure sector.

A Personal Story
The founder of the Care Annex Company has direct experience with his own mother being in long term care. His mother has spent over 7 years in a care home and he understands the challenges that this can have on families, both financially and emotionally. The Care Annex concept was born out of a wish to provide greater options for families and the wider care sector by bringing to gether the benefits of off-site construction with the latest care technologies – in a unit that can be lifted into position and relocated multiple times.
‘‘I came across the Care Annex Company at the Ideal Home Show 2019 and was really impressed with this new business and their innovative product for the care sector. From my own experience of having my Mother in long term care, I understand the real dilemma facing families both financially and emotionally when it comes to providing care options for a family member.
I think the Care Annex could provide a real alternative to a care home or doing major conversion works to your own home – its ready built to your requirements and just lifted into your garden – and it can be moved again if you ever move – brilliant, such a simple concept but so well designed and built.
With an ageing population and a need for more community led care, the Care Annex should provide a viable and practical option for lots of families – WELL DONE!’’
