As a national charity, we enable people to live later life well. Through 90 specialist care homes, 70 thriving retirement living and 62 vibrant community groups and befriending, we inspire the best care and wellbeing at every stage of later life.
With over 75 years’ experience we put people at the heart of everything we do in all our homes and schemes across Britain.
All our donations and any surplus we generate is invested into the services we provide for our 18,500 residents and members. We have over 7,600 dedicated colleagues, supported by over 4,000 generous volunteers.
Our mission is to ‘enable people to live later life well’ by inspiring the best care and wellbeing at every stage to later life.
Our values underpin our entire approach:
- We nurture mind, body and spirit
- We respect every person, treating them with dignity
- We inspire the best in each other.
Putting our values into practice:
We put people at the heart of everything we do, treating people as individuals, respecting and honouring their wishes and providing care in a way that’s best suited to each person’s specific needs, enabling them to live later life well.
We place great importance on nurturing the mind, body and spirit of those we care for, their families and our colleagues regardless of faith, background or belief.
It is important that all our colleagues, volunteers and those we care for understand and share our values in order to play their part in building a community that enables people to live later life well.
