Friends of the Elderly

Article Type: News From: Quality in Ageing and Older Adults, Volume 12, Issue 3

Friends of the Elderly offers a variety of choices to older people in need of support, from financial and community services to nursing and residential homes – always tailoring care to the individual’s needs. Believing that all people should retain their independence and dignity, choice and peace of mind in old age, Friends of the Elderly promotes real choices for each person so that they can continue to live independently in their own homes and communities for as long as possible.

Founded in 1905, with its first residential care home opened in 1926, Friends of the Elderly has 106 years of experiences in providing innovative support for older people and particularly those in need due to frailty or isolation.

Friends of the Elderly is passionate about enhancing the lives of older people by providing high quality caring services personalised to the needs of the individual and integrated with local communities. These include residential care homes, nursing homes and dementia care homes, while day clubs, home support, home visiting, telephone friendship and grant-giving services help older people live independently at home.
