About us

A caring organisation with a rich history

What we do

We run care homes and day care and home care services in Bedfordshire, Dorset, Essex, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey and Worcestershire.

Through our charitable work, we provide support for older people affected by loneliness and grants for those living on a low income. We work with partners to increase our impact and to raise awareness about the issues that affect us as we get older.

Namaste care is for people with dementia who requires sensory care needs

Our Dementia Service- Namaste Care

As one of the oldest care providers in the UK, we continually evolve and improve as a charity. We have recently undertaken a complete upgrade of our approach to dementia care – to enhance the quality of life for people living with dementia in our homes and services. This is done in partnership with the University of Worcester’s Association for Dementia Studies.

As part of embedding dementia care across all levels in our organisation, Namaste care was trialled and implemented across our care homes in Malvern.

Our history

We have been helping older people remain independent with dignity and respect for over 100 years.
