MHA is a pioneer of person-centred dementia care in the UK. 

With a reputation for providing some of the highest quality care, our person-centred approach recognises each person as a unique individual and addresses their own spiritual and physical needs, with both reassurance and support. Read more about our specialist dementia care >

Focusing on individual needs and support for older people, we make sure that we help our residents live later life well, aiming to alleviate the symptoms of dementia with understanding and expertise.

Our purpose-built dementia care homes are designed and decorated to be safe for residents, and also as familiar, reassuring and as easy to navigate as possible.

What makes MHA's Dementia Care Homes special...

Music Therapy

Music therapy can help in many clinical situations, particularly where communication is difficult due to conditions such as dementia, as featured on the BBC One documentary 'Our Dementia Choir with Vicky McClure'.

As a charity, we provide one-to-one and group music therapy sessions with a trained music therapist free of charge to our residents living with dementia. These life-enhancing sessions help older people to unlock special memories and express emotions and feelings. Learn more >>

Chaplaincy & Spirituality

Chaplains provide a listening presence, companionship and one-to-one pastoral support for all MHA residents, their friends and relatives, and staff members - irrespective of their beliefs. 

Our Chaplains adopt a person-centred approach and deliver support with warmth, compassion, humour, mutual respect, strength and hope, aiming to inspire and provide stimulation to those we serve. Learn more >>

Seize The Day

Whether you've always wanted to take part in an extraordinary activity, enjoy a former pastime, or simply visit a location that holds special memories, with MHA’s unique Seize The Day initiative almost anything is possible.

All care home residents and their relatives are encouraged to share their Seize The Day ambitions with care staff who will endeavour to turn the wish into a reality. Learn more >>
