ABOUT PILGRIMS FRIENDS SOCIETY
Founded in 1807 as “The Aged Pilgrims’ Friend Society” and originally set-up to provide grants and pensions to needy elderly Christians, our ministry has grown so that we now have 16 schemes throughout England, providing a range of services for older people, from sheltered housing through to nursing and dementia care, as well as home-leave accommodation for missionary families.
Louise is media and communications manager with the Pilgrims’ Friend Society. She is a writer and speaker and has published books on dementia (Lion Monarch). She is a counsellor and cognitive behavioural therapist, and her Masters’ dissertation examined the effects on relatives of caring for a loved one with dementia.
