Living in our own home is one way in which we maintain our independence. Yet really “living” is also about friendship and support, about being involved in our community, about getting out and about and simply enjoying ourselves. Sometimes, though, that is easier said than done.

Through local Live at Home schemes, MHA provides social contact and support for older people who wish to continue living at home without becoming isolated. We enable people to live a more fulfilled life.

We operate over 70 Live at Home schemes throughout the country. The range of services varies at each scheme, as we respond to the needs of older people in each community. Each has its own Manager and – crucially – a team of committed volunteers. Together they provide a wide range of activities:

  • One to one befriending and support
  • Information and signposting
  • Lunch clubs
  • Social activities
  • Outings and holidays

Live at Home schemes are supported by MHA’s national staff team, which ensures that standards are maintained and training delivered to volunteers. We believe so strongly in this work that, since 2004, MHA has also promoted similar schemes through other local volunteer-based groups, supporting them with grant funding arrangements.
