Help care for the Chelsea Pensioners during the coronavirus crisis

During the current pandemic, the Royal Hospital Chelsea is doing everything possible to keep the Chelsea Pensioners safe and well.

Most of the Chelsea Pensioners are over 70 and many of them have some form of medical condition, disability or chronic illness. In normal times, they live full lives – but, as you know, these are not normal times. The most vulnerable residents are those receiving medical or specialist care in our Infirmary, but all our Pensioners are at serious risk from the Coronavirus and all of them need our protection and support.

The Royal Hospital is taking all necessary steps to safeguard the Pensioners, based on the advice of the government and health professionals. We are preparing for every eventuality.

Any donation you make will be used to help us keep the Chelsea Pensioners safe and well during current crisis and help us prepare for the future.

Healthcare systems in countries around the world are facing a considerable challenge in their Coronavirus preparation and response. The increased risk to the elderly and those with underlying health conditions is putting pressure on organisations which have a primary focus on caring for older people.
