Jacob’s Hospice Homes: Jacob’s Hospice Homes is a small registered charity which funds and runs facilities for homeless or destitute elderly people in South India. Jacob’s was set up in 2006 with the aim of making a difference to the lives of homeless elderly people who have nowhere else to turn. To be old, frail and homeless is a lonely and frightening experience. At Jacob’s there is always someone who cares and can help. Jacob’s is non-denominational and accepts both men and women.
