Our Care

We provide care for ex-Service people and their partners who live with disability or dementia in three state-of-the-art Homes. We work to ensure that ex-Service people and their partners who need our care are looked after and respected as individuals. Their nursing, disability and dementia care needs are met in an appropriate, personalised and compassionate way, by highly skilled, motivated staff. We’ve been providing care for veterans for over a century. We constantly evolve our services and innovate in our care to meet the present and future needs of our Armed Forces, just as we have for more than 100 years.

Our Future

By the end of 2018, the Charity will be running three Homes and delivering an unparalleled level of specialist nursing care for veterans, including award-winning dementia care. We are developing our services to provide day care, home care and care for younger veterans. Whichever way we offer our care, friendship, respect and compassion are always at the heart of what we do.

40,000 veterans will be living with dementia in 2020.

We provide over a third of the dementia care beds offered to ex-Service people in England.

Our Knowledge

The Charity has over 100 years’ experience in providing pioneering nursing and therapeutic care to disabled veterans. We are committed to sharing our knowledge, skills and experience with other organisations to promote better care for all veterans and older people. We partner with health care, military and academic organisations to share and develop our knowledge for the benefit of our communities.

 

Sharing our Experience

We are passionate about innovation in our care to improve the lives of veterans and we are ideally placed to provide training. The Homes offer nursing and military nursing student training and placements to Nursing Associate Trainees as part of an NHS pilot scheme.
