If you feel that the EU referendum and/or its outcome has aged you, maybe it's a good time to mention 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 our care homes, many receiving specialist dementia or nursing care. (In Aylesbury, this includes 'Hillside' at the top of Bicester Road.)
- 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 its Live at Home schemes across the UK.
They rely on the commitment and dedication of 7,000 staff and 4,000 volunteers who share their values. Together they aim to provide more quality housing, care and support services to meet the needs of more older people across the country.
