About Us

Making a difference to peoples' lives

At Elizabeth Finn we aim to provide the UK’s most loved care homes, filling later life with joy, community and kindness.

These core commitments run through all we do as an organisation and are clear to see when you meet our amazing care staff and whenever you visit our eight unique homes.

Above all, we care. We care about every one of our residents and each of our 750 staff members. We care about our local community and we work together for a fairer society nationally. Through our philanthropic heritage and unique position as a small, “profit for purpose” organisation, we prioritise exemplary, individualised care, whilst enabling meaningful support for our charity partner Turn2us in their vital work supporting struggling families.

At Elizabeth Finn exemplary care is not just outstanding levels of clinical excellence, but truly making a difference to peoples’ lives by developing connections and personal relationships that build a nurturing and supportive environment for our residents and their families.

“I feel privileged to work amongst such kind, caring and lovely people that make up the team without whom I could not do my job.”

About Us

Our Royal Patron: HRH The Duchess of Gloucester

“Since 2003, I have been Royal Patron of Turn2us, the parent charity of Elizabeth Finn Homes, since 2003 and during this time it has been my pleasure to have visited many of the care homes, meeting staff and residents. I have found them to be truly loving homes, where staff and residents flourish, laugh, and build celebratory later life communities.

Both the care homes and the charity itself carry forward the exemplary work initiated by Elizabeth Finn when she set up the Distressed Gentlefolk’s Aid Association in 1897.

Today, Turn2us directly works with those facing extreme financial insecurity, providing emergency grants and information, and sharing their insights and experiences to drive systems change, in order that that fewer people in society ever need to experience poverty.

Elizabeth Finn Homes pays 100% of its profit and rent each year to Turn2us to support this work. They are incredibly proud that through this amazing model of charity ownership the homes turn exemplary care for hundreds of residents into support for millions of struggling families across the UK.

Having met both staff and residents at several of the care homes, I have witnessed the joy, compassion and excellence that is provided by those who really wish to make a difference. Through their work, and that of the charity, the team at Elizabeth Finn Homes give all they can to help build a fairer society, ensuring that residents are supported to lead individual, full and active lives, with the highest levels of care provided in beautiful surroundings.

The wellbeing of older people has long been a cause close to my heart and I am delighted to be able to offer my continued support by acting as Royal Patron.”

We are incredibly grateful and honoured to Her Royal Highness for her invaluable support in championing the rights and dignity of older people and those in financial distress.

About Us

A history dating back over 140 years

EFH today is an organisation focused on caring for those in later life, with the same insight, kindness and compassion that has been part of our unique history, which dates back to 1879.

At the age of 72, Elizabeth Finn founded the Distressed Gentlefolk’s Aid Association from her home in London, deciding something had to be done to deal with the poverty and illness she saw in her circle of society.

Our first residential care home was purchased in 1948 and since then we have been guided by Elizabeth’s vision and wisdom and it is with pride that we continue her legacy.

Take a look back at the key events in our history to understand more of what we are today.
