Friends of the Elderly is a charity that has been supporting older people for over a century.  From serving up ‘Penny Dinners’ to WW1 veterans, to pioneering innovations in dementia care, older people are at the heart of all we do.

We run care homes and day care services for older people including those living with dementia and memory impairment. We have our care homes in Bedfordshire, Dorset, Essex, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey and Worcestershire.

Through our charitable work, we provide grants for older people living on a low income and undertake projects that support older people to live fulfilled lives.

Our care homes aim to provide a warm, welcoming and cosy environment, catering to individual needs, with delicious food and comfortable rooms that can be personalised with resident’s belongings. Visitors are welcome at any time.

Our caring and compassionate staff are trained to the highest standards.

We firmly believe in listening to and empowering all our residents. We work with them to produce a personalised care plan that reflects their views, choices and needs throughout their stay. We also recognise the important role that friends and family can play and encourage them, with the resident’s consent, to take part in their care. To support residents’ independence and engagement in community life, we organise a range of activities that encourage friendships across the generations and place our care homes at the heart of their local communities.

As well as residential, we also provide respite care.
