AMC MHA

Yesterday, Sunday 9th June, was MHA Sunday (Methodist Homes for the Aged).MHA is a charity providing care, accommodation and support services for more than 18,000 older people throughout Britain. Our 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 we support:

  • 5,000 older people living in our care homes, many receiving specialist dementia or nursing care
  • 2,500 older people living independently in purpose-built retirement living communities, with access to social and leisure facilities and flexible care should they need it
  • 10,500 older people living independently in their own homes with the support of our Live at Home schemes across the UK.

    We rely on the commitment and dedication of 7,000 staff and 5,000 volunteers who share our mission and values. Together we are a truly special organisation that aims to provide quality housing, care and support services to meet the needs of more than 18,000 older people across the UK, of all faiths and none.
    It gives us great pride to be recognised as a leading provider of care and support in later life.

    Our local MHA care home is Hillside Care Home, Ardenham Lane, Aylesbury, HP19 8AB, just along the road from Aylesbury Methodist Church. They welcome volunteers to come along to chat to residents, to offer entertainment, or any other skills you might be willing to share,.do get in touch with them if you are able to help in any way.
