The best experience of ageing
Make the most of life, wherever you are on its journey. Sustain treasured relationships. Exercise choice and be whoever you want to be. Feel valued and important.
This is how retirement should feel. This is retirement living.
As a charity, our unique blend of welcoming retirement villages, complete with specialist care homes and support for older people, allow us to put what matters to you at the heart of all that we do.
Unique villages for later living
Each of our five villages has its own unique character. But one thing they all share is the special warmth the St Monica Trust radiates that’s all about living life to the full.Discover our Villages

What has the St Monica Trust done for Bristol?
We're proud of the impact we have on our city.
For our residents and customers, it's delivered by creating vibrant, caring communities. For our staff it's about making people's jobs more satisfying and rewarding. And for Bristol and the surrounding area, it's about partnering with outside organisations and supporting disadvantaged older people through the work of our Community Impact Team.
Watch the video and follow the frisbee to find out more (and don't forget to hang on for the final credits, it's worth it!) or read our latest Social Impact Report.
Through our community development team and the gifts and grants that are awarded by our Community Fund, we help older people in and around Bristol to make the most of life in the communities where they live.
