Since 1946 we have expanded dramatically and continue to look to do more throughout the county – from twelve residents living in one home, to 300 people across six care homes, two adult day care centres and two affordable independent apartments, all looked after by over 450 staff. But we have remained true to the founding principles of the charity; a desire to improve the lives of others through care and dedication.
Our founder would be impressed by the introduction of modern equipment such as hoists and pressure-relieving beds, but some things never change – the caring relationship we have with all our residents.
‘There is active work to be done. We are not worthy to live in any society taking everything and giving nothing.’
Said Miss Lilian Mary Faithfull from her Opening Address as Principal of Cheltenham Ladies College, September 1907, from the College Archives by kind permission of Cheltenham Ladies College.
