Methodist Homes for the Aged (MHA)


MHA is a charity providing care, accommodation and support services for more than 16,000 older people throughout Britain.  Its mission is to improve the quality of life of older people, inspired by Christian concern.

 Founded by members of the Methodist Church back in 1943, today it supports:-

  • 5,000 older people living in care homes, many receiving specialist dementia or nursing care.
  • 2,000 older people living independently in purpose-built apartments, with access to social and leisure facilities and flexible care should they need it.
  • 9,000 older people living independently in their own homes with the support of ‘Live at Home’ schemes across the UK.

MHA relies on the commitment and dedication of 7,000 staff and 4,000 volunteers.  The aim is to provide more quality housing, care and support services to meet the needs of older people across the country.  For further information www.mha.org.uk
