Before Bill moved into the Whitgift Almshouses, he would sit on his own at home with a crossword puzzle. With no family and friends around him, Bill felt lonely and found it hard to socialise.

Now he lives in a thriving, supportive community in the heart of Croydon. Using the mini bus service provided by Whitgift Care, Bill can travel to Whitgift and Wilhelmina House, Whitgift Care’s additional care homes, to play Bingo and socialise with other residents and 1596 Club Day Care members. Bill used to feel isolated with no one to talk to, but now he feels right at home and part of the Whitgift Care family.
