To improve the quality of life for older people, inspired by Christian concern.
What We Stand For
The following values underpin the way in which we seek to fulfil this mission:
Where We Have Come From
Methodist Homes was founded in 1943 by members of the Methodist Church. Their faith inspired them to seek to improve the quality of life of older people at the end of the Second World War at a time before the Welfare State was established. We continue to have strong support from the Methodist Church in particular and many volunteers work with us for this reason.
Putting Our Values into Practice
We are open to all older people in need, irrespective of their beliefs. Our homes and schemes are made up of diverse communities. Opportunities are made available for individuals to develop and practise their faith as they feel appropriate.
A special feature of our Homes and Schemes is the emphasis placed on the spiritual well-being of older people. We believe this to be an important element of the service we provide and an integral part of everybody’s work. We respect the personal beliefs of each individual, and the choice of older people to participate, or not, in activities and events within the home or scheme.
It is important that all our staff, volunteers and those we serve understand and share our values in order to play their part in building a community which delivers an improved quality of life for older people.
