MHA: Methodist Homes

As one of Britain’s most respected care providers, MHA delivers compassionate, person-centred care and support for older people across the UK. With over 75 years' of experience providing care underpinned by Christian values, MHA aims to help individuals to live later life well through its residential homes, community-based services and specialist dementia care.

Operating on a not-for-profit basis, MHA invests all profits back into enhancing its services and facilities. The organisation prides itself on promoting choice, independence, value and dignity across every level of care provision. Core values of respect, kindness and encouragement underpin the warm, welcoming atmosphere found across MHA’s care settings.

At the heart of the MHA approach is a commitment to truly understand each individual, their needs and preferences. Specially trained staff take time to build rapport with residents, identifying the best ways to provide comfort, familiarity and daily stimulation. Recognising that everyone follows their own rhythms and routines, MHA delivers personalised care that enables residents to continue treasured rituals, hobbies and activities.

MHA’s residential homes provide supportive accommodation and care for individuals needing daily assistance. With a diverse range of ensuite rooms, apartments and bungalows, residents can choose their preferred living space and amenities. Freshly prepared meals, regular housekeeping and on-site staffing ensure complete peace of mind 24/7. An engaging schedule of social activities makes every day enjoyable.

Specialist dementia care across secured environments is delivered with warmth and understanding. Therapies such as reminiscence, music and sensory rooms aim to enrich wellbeing and spark positive memories. Specially designed dementia-friendly facilities promote safety and independence with discreet monitoring.

Alongside residential settings, MHA provides care services enabling people to retain independent home living for longer. Domiciliary care, day centres and befriending services all help older people to stay socially connected and actively engaged within their communities.

As a not-for-profit organisation, MHA invests surplus income into improving elderly care across Britain. Recent initiatives include:

  • Launching technology pilots to enhance care through innovations such as virtual reality, companion robots and sensor monitoring
  • Building new Enriched Opportunities hubs providing support services and social activities
  • Developing Live at Home schemes that facilitate independent living
  • Campaigning for greater funding, resources and awareness of elderly care needs

However, while pioneering improved care options, MHA’s person-centred approach remains central to its work. Staff display exceptional dedication, patience and encouragement at every stage, enabling individuals to feel valued, supported and fully involved in their care.

With demand for elderly care services rising, MHA continues developing its capabilities to provide outstanding, compassionate support to more people across more regions. Yet the organisation’s long-standing commitment to human dignity, fulfilled lives and respect for individual needs remains unchanged. Through its tireless advocacy and care for older people, MHA gives generations the support, comfort and opportunities to thrive in later life.
