As a charity we are in care for the right reasons, not for profit, and through our ‘Home for Life’ pledge, we will never ask a resident to leave our care homes for financial reasons.
97p in every £1 spent is put towards the day to day care of our residents and day guests, and all that entails.
We are very privileged to care for our remarkable people. We should never forget our older generation have helped form our way of life and have given so much to society as we know it. We believe people should never experience loneliness and isolation, and should have every opportunity to live their lives with dignity and respect.
Together, with fundraising, we can improve the lives of more people in Gloucestershire with the care they need and deserve.
Why we need support
Our growing elderly population need us now more than ever.
A third of our residents have little or no means of personally funding their much needed care. As a charity we financially support around 77 residents and subsidise their fees to the amount of £1.87 million a year. This equates to around £24,000 per resident per annum. Through this subsidy and our ‘home for life’ pledge, we will never ask a resident to leave our group of care homes for financial reasons.
