As the UK's leading charity care provider dedicated to enriching the lives of older people, we are committed to delivering exceptional care, accommodation, and support services across Britain, ensuring the highest quality of life at every stage of later life.

Our story began in 1943 when compassionate members of the Methodist Church came together to establish our mission. Today, we proudly serve and support:

  • 3,896 older people living in our care homes, where we offer specialised dementia or nursing care to ensure their wellbeing
  • 2,763 older people living independently in retirement living communities, enjoying access to various social and leisure facilities, with the added comfort of flexible care when needed
  • 11,400 older people living independently in their own homes, empowered by our community services that span across Britain.

We are driven by the desire to inspire the best care and promote wellbeing for every individual as they journey through later life. 

At the heart of our success lies the unwavering dedication and commitment of over 6,500 passionate staff members and more than 3,000 volunteers who wholeheartedly share our mission and values

As the only care provider to offer connected care and support through specialist care homes, thriving retirement living and vibrant community groups, our organisation is a leading light in later life care. Learn more about our highly regarded work in our Annual Report & Accounts
