The Charity employs a semi-retired caretaker who resides at the Cottages and looks after the general well being of residents. The Homelink alarm system is installed for residents to use in an emergency.

Over recent years Trustees have been successful in raising funds to completely refurbish 8 of the cottages increasing living accommodation and improving the lives of existing and future residents.
