Excelcare promotes working with charities

Posted on June 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Major provider Excelcare Holdings has made an annual donation of £12,000to the charity Age Concern.

Excelcare chief executive Osman Ertosun said the company had made the donation public in order to promote the message that the independent and charitable sectors should work not just with regulators to increase the standards of care for elderly people, but also with charitable organisations in order to explore the ways and means that older citizens can fully participate in society.

“We chose to make the donation as Age Concern’s work exemplifies both Excelcare’s and my own family’s view of the absolute importance of older people being provided with the support they need to live their lives with dignity,” said Mr Ertosun.

Age Concern provides a long established day care service centre in the grounds of Excelcare’s Evergreen Care Centre in Southwark.
