At Friends of the Elderly we provide a whole range of specialist care services that help support older people. From residential care homes, day care services through to short term respite care, we want those using our homes and services to have the best experience of care possible.
We’ve put together some tips on caring for someone with dementia from our specialised dementia care team.
As part of our charitable work, we provide grants to older people, of state pension age or above, living on low incomes across England and Wales. Typically, these might be to help with heating, cooking or safely staying in touch with friends and family.

Infection Prevention Control
Friends of the Elderly continues to prioritise being Covid Wise in how we work across all our homes and services. This means that we follow strict infection control processes, including rigorous cleaning throughout the day, and ensuring that all staff wear appropriate PPE.

There are lots of ways in which you can support us with donations and fundraising. It’s thanks to the generosity of our supporters that we’re able to make a difference to the lives of so many older people across the UK.
FotE is a charity that puts people at the heart of all we do. Founded over 100 years ago we’re still going strong, providing support and care to older people who need it. We’ve gone from providing meals for World War 1 veterans to pioneering innovations in dementia care and taking part in cutting edge research alongside NHS Digital to improve care in our homes.
