RMBI

The Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution (RMBI) has been caring for older Freemasons and their dependants for over 160 years. We operate 17 care homes across England and Wales offering a range of high quality care. Many of our Homes are registered for both residential and nursing care and all can offer places to people with dementia following an assessment of their needs.

The RMBI also provides short-stay breaks including respite care and practical advice and support is offered on health and welfare rights and on all aspects of the services offered by the RMBI, the other Masonic Charities and by statutory and voluntary agencies.
