New Charity provides Care Funding for Leicestershire

A new Charity, known as the Blanche Sargeaunt Foundation, has been established with the purpose of contributing to the cost of providing a Live In Carer for those living in the Leicestershire (or within a 10 mile radius of the county boundary) 

Live in Care is becoming increasingly popular and provides an effective alternative to a traditional care home. It enables an individual to remain living in the comfort and familiarity of their own home thanks to a carefully selected carer living with them and attending to their care needs. 

The new Charity has been created in memory of Blanche Sargeaunt by her nephew, Patrick Eales. Blanche lived in Loughborough and in her later years benefited greatly from having carers live with her. Patrick saw it as a fitting tribute to her to create a charity that helps make Live In Care available to others. 

Applications to the Charity are welcome form anyone living in Leicestershire (or within a 10 mile radius of the county boundary) who have a genuine care need. This might include those with dementia, illness, disability, trauma or infirmity due to old age. 

The Charity has appointed local care agency Quality Life UK to assess all applications for funding and to provide the care. Those who wish to find out more or apply for funding should contact Quality Life UK on: 01509 76 78 79 or
