Charity praised for elderly care work

  • Comment

Care charity Brendoncare has been praised as a ‘Beacon of Quality’ for its innovative care solutions and commitment to person-centred care for older people through its care centres and social clubs.

Professor Nick Bosanquet, Professor of Health Policy at Imperial College London, praised the charity at its annual event “The Changing Shape of Care”.

In his keynote address Professor Bosanquet highlighted important changes affecting older people that have occurred over the past five years, most notably the ever increasing number of “older old” (those over the age of 85), the considerable difference in lifestyle and affluence between “younger old” and “older old” and the higher levels of long term illness particularly for women.

He went on to talk about the quality of life experienced by the “older old” and said that “Brendoncare has a very big role to play in the continuing development of elderly care. It has been a beacon of quality in residential and nursing home care and a pioneer in the development of care for the individual.” He also praised the work being undertaken in Brendoncare’s clubs division, particularly tackling social isolation.
