MHA Northwood Live at Home has been working with older people in the north of Hillingdon for over 21 years. Our aim is to bring quality to the lives of older people helping them to live later life well.

We produce a quarterly newsletter which outlines the supported social programme we offer. This shows where activities take place, timings and costs. All activities are subsidised and we are dependent on charitable giving and fundraising to cover associated costs. Please call 01923 842494 to receive a digital copy of the newsletter.

We work to keep people active and to help them find social support and friendship networks. This enables them to live in their own homes for as long as they are able, especially those who may have lost confidence or feel in need of additional support. If they are unable to come to activities for any reason we may introduce a volunteer befriender. For those who are still able to travel independently we encourage them to make their way to our activities but, if they have significant mobility issues, we work with volunteer drivers to assist as many as we can.

Where people are interested in things we do not offer or who need help with things we do not provide, such as financial advice or personal care, we signpost them to other organisations. We want older people to have longer, healthier lives, filled with purpose and a sense of belonging, with improved physical health and emotional resilience.

The staff team work with local volunteers to respond to people who are referred to us or who self-refer. We welcome anyone over 60 from diverse backgrounds and cultures. We are open to people of all faiths or none and we respect their beliefs and values. All members have an initial member assessment and regular reviews. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to support us and we take up references and DBS check all those who apply. We have some multi-generational trips and events to encourage volunteering children and young people to volunteer.
