Services for older people in Winchester

At MHA Communities Winchester, we want to enable older people to stay living independently in their own homes for as long as possible, with the best possible quality of life.

Through befriending, lunch clubs, assisted shopping, activity and friendship sessions, outings and much more, MHA Communities across the UK help to tackle loneliness and isolation in people over 60 - helping them to lead fulfilled lives and remain as active members in their local communities.

MHA Communities Winchester provides volunteer based support and friendship to older people across the Winchester District, including Alresford, Colden Common and Waltham Chase, who still live in their own home and may have become isolated and lonely for whatever reason.

Through our able team of volunteers we are able to offer opportunities for companionship, support and advice. We have services which can be offered at home and group activities in a place where you can be among friends. These include our weekly schedule of clubs and activities,  our one-to-one services and the opportunity to join our regular outings and  annual holiday.  Above all you will know that there is always someone to turn to for help, advice or simply a chat.

Information for businesses and corporates

MHA is able to subsidise many of its charitable services thanks to the generous contributions of businesses who want to make a difference in their local communities. How to get involved

Information for families and friends

If you’re looking at Live at Home to help someone you know, we understand. With a busy work life, family and other responsibilities, sometimes it just isn’t possible to travel regularly and give a loved one the dedicated care and support you wish you could provide. Refer a family member or friend

Information for healthcare professionals

If an older person in hospital has no family, friends or neighbours, we can assist them to return home. We work with GP practices, hospital discharge and re-enablement teams and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to support older people adjust and settle back at home after a period in hospital. Refer a patient

Information for local authorities

Through our preventative, person-centred services, we can reduce the strain on local health services – delaying, minimising or even preventing people’s need for them. More information
