The statement of accounts for the year ended 31 December 1988 for the Jewish Home for the Aged. The cover displays the name of the accountant, ‘Brown Harrison Weare and Co. Chartered Accountant, Cardiff’. A statement that the accountant had prepared (according to instructions) “without carrying out an audit, the annexed accounts from your accounting records and from information and explanation supplied to us” is included.

Listed in the booklet are a revenue account and a balance sheet including assets and liabilities. Following this on subsequent pages is a further breakdown, listing costs of gas and electricity and the income from voluntary subscription and contributions from the Welfare Committee.

Pencare (formerly known as 'The Trustees of Penylan House') is a charity, which offers care for elderly people of the Jewish faith and is currently based in Cardiff, although the catchment area for the home covers South Wales and the West of England. Pencare has been working with Linc Cymru to redevelop their care home, Penylan House, to ensure high quality care to Cardiff's elderly Jewish community and extending the care to elderly people not of the Jewish faith.

Mr Henry Silver and other members of the Cardiff Jewish community had originally founded a Home for the Aged in 1946 in Canton. In December 1948, the Home moved to Holme Towers in Penarth to provide more space for its large number of applications. Despite the beautiful surroundings, the Home in Penarth was quite isolated, so the difficult decision was later taken to move the Home to Penylan Road in Cardiff, meaning many residents were now closer to their friends and relatives. Residents moved to Penylan House in February 1959.
