Welcome to the Trust
Who are we?
The Gloucester Charities Trust has a long history of providing affordable housing and practical assistance to older people in Gloucestershire. The Trust also manages a residential home, a nursing home and a day centre, all of which help to create a seamless approach to supporting local people to live full and independent lives, both in their own homes and, if the need arises, in one of our specialist facilities.
What do we do?
At The Gloucester Charities Trust we understand how important it is to feel settled and secure in the later years of life and our aim is to make life a little easier by offering a range of high quality support services, all of which can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual. We manage 136 self-contained retirement flats on four sites across the city, along with Magdalen House, our Nursing Home and Guild House, our residential facility.
We are proud to have recently added The Kimbrose Club; a day club for older people with dementia and memory loss, completing what we call our “circle of care” philosophy to meet the needs of local people. We constantly look for ways to expand or develop our services and have recently opened up 'The Monday Club'; a social club with the older person in mind and we are looking to 'future-proof' our accommodation to meet the changing needs of the future.
What makes us different?
We believe that our services are delivered in a way that respects individuality and personal choice and enables our residents to live full, independent lives. We involve the people that we support by encouraging them to “have their say” through our resident representative committee groups and we offer residents the opportunity to take part in the many activities and social events that take place across the Trust.
Our residential home was one of the first in Gloucestershire to have been awarded the Dementia Mark Award and our staff teams are trained and experienced in supporting people with a range of different needs. We offer a complete “circle of care”; from supported living in one of our retirement flats to the more specialised care that our day club, residential and nursing homes provide.
