About the community
Care – Compassion – Companionship
Moving from your own home to a care home is a life changing event. Sadly this is often seen as the end of real life. But in Simeon we see it differently. We believe that the whole of a person’s life has significance, meaning and purpose. Our aim is to provide a home where the older person can find security, care and support. Simeon’s philosophy of care is centred on upholding dignity and autonomy, building positive relationships, and sharing responsibility for decision making.
Simeon Care for the Elderly is the only Camphill community in the UK founded to provide companionship, personal and nursing care to older people. Simeon is home to 23 residents and has excellent staffing levels, which includes 2 long term volunteers and up to 8 international short-term volunteers complementing our employed team.
