About Us

Our unique complex on the outskirts of the seaside town of Margate, Kent, comprises 48 almshouse cottages and bungalows, and a residential care home with 31 single ground floor ensuite rooms, 5 of which are designated to respite care. The enclosed grounds are an oasis of tranquility and exceptional beauty.

This unmatched setting together with the exceptional care offered gives the older person the opportunity to live a fulfilled and happy later life, with as much independence and choice as they wish to exercise – a real home from home. Whilst the almshouses are still designated to those who could not afford to live comfortably in their own accommodation, residential care provision is open to applicants from all backgrounds.

Our staff are trained to the highest levels and in 2008 we opened out own state of the art training annexe to ensure that not only our own staff but also those from other local bodies can continue to hone and improve their skills. Another recent addition to our services is the provision of domiciliary care for our own almshouse residents.

The Charity achieves the highest standards of care, with regular very good rating from the Care Quality Commission.  http://www.cqc.org.uk/location/1-112111793. Our reputation is second to none and the usual response of those who visit us for the first time – whatever their age – is “Can I put my name on the waiting list?”
