As the largest charity care provider for older people in the UK, we offer some of the highest quality care, accommodation and support services throughout Britain. Our mission is to inspire the best care and wellbeing at every stage of later life.

Founded by members of the Methodist Church in 1943, today we support:

  • 4,400 older people living in our care homes, many receiving specialist dementia or nursing care
  • 3,000 older people living independently in retirement living communities, with access to social and leisure facilities and flexible care when needed
  • 11,100 older people living independently in their own homes with the support of our community services across Britain.

We rely on the commitment and dedication of 7,500 staff and over 4,000 volunteers who 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. We support over 18,500 older people nationwide. 

It gives us great pride to be recognised as a leading provider of care and support in later life. Read more about our award-winning care in our Annual Impact Statement
