At MHA we put people at the heart of everything we do. We get to know their life experiences and interests as we understand that everyone has spiritual needs, a need for finding meaning and purpose in life.

We believe that spiritual fulfilment feels different for each individual and enables people to live later life well. Religious faith, good relationships, hope and positive experiences all play their part in finding fulfilment.

Our dedicated chaplains

We’re really proud of our dedicated MHA chaplaincy service inspired by our Methodist roots. We place great importance on nurturing the mind, body and spirit of those we care for, their families and our colleagues, of all faiths and none. We believe this is a vital aspect of enabling people to live later life well.

We employ a chaplain in each of our care homes and in most of our retirement living communities, with the intention to expand this support to all our residents and members. Our chaplains provide one-to-one support, a sense of comfort and a listening ear to everyone who needs it. They also organise worship for those who wish to participate and where appropriate, residents are encouraged to maintain links with local faith communities.

Our chaplains use a person-centred approach and deliver pastoral care with warmth, compassion, humour, mutual respect, strength and hope, aiming to inspire those we care for.

End of life care

For many residents in our care homes, MHA will provide them with their last home. Our chaplains hold an important role in helping residents and their relatives approach their final years with a sense of acceptance, peace and fulfilment.

A key part of our work has been the development of The Final Lap – an award-winning programme designed to make sure all MHA care homes are places where death and dying are faced openly, positively and with support.

Our staff are professionally trained to support residents and their families as they explore what the last days of life will mean for them, as well as for their friends and relatives and our staff and volunteers within the home.
