Triangle Community Services
Service continue to be run as usual by Friends of the Elderly.
Triangle Community Services has merged with Friends of the Elderly
Our community services support people to remain living independently in their own homes and our care homes provide residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for those who need more support.
We also aim to reduce loneliness across our communities with a range of volunteer led activities and befriending service.
For over 100 years, since 1905, we have been responding to the changing needs of people and society. Founded for volunteers to befriend poor families, the first grant service was established in the same year. Later Friends of the Poor became an independent organisation in 1911.
After supporting through two world wars with the need for our support increasing we began focusing on older people and had four residential care homes by 1945. As the number of older people requiring nursing care increased, we responded with nursing wings in our residential homes and by supporting older people in their own homes.
In 1972 we changed our name changed to Friends of the Elderly and have been providing services that support older people ever since.
