Look behind the scenes of Methodist Homes (MHA) and there is a hidden army of people caring for and supporting its residents and members.

That’s why the national charity which provides care, accommodation and support for 18,000 older people has launched Hidden Heroes, a campaign to highlight the hidden heroes who work across MHA’s services and encourage others across the social care sector to do the same.

It’s people like Rob, the maintenance worker at MHA Claybourne care home in Stoke on Trent, who has shared his skills as a barber and developing a real bond with residents.

It’s stories of the domestic assistant at MHA Amathea care home in Workington, Cumbria, who has been spending time with a resident recently out of hospital to encourage him to eat.

Or Dorcas, the domestic assistant at MHA Morel Court care home in Penarth, Wales, who has been making face coverings for staff to use outside work to help them stay safe and Anne-Marie from MHA Grimsby Live at Home scheme who delivers weekly shopping to a lovely lady in the community who really needs it.

#HiddenHeroes is being launched across MHA’s social media channels to highlight the work being done to care for and support colleagues, residents and their families, members and volunteers.

MHA’s Chief Executive Sam Monaghan commented: “It never fails to astound me how my colleagues respond to challenges and turn their hands to almost anything.

“I salute all our hidden heroes across the country.”
