What a year it’s been for MHA. We were named Best Residential Care Provider by market intelligence firm Laing & Buisson in its Independent Healthcare Awards and we received Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award, the corporate equivalent of the MBE.

We were delighted to continue expanding our services to older people. For example, Assisted Living, which provides care home levels of support to people in private apartments, was established in Fulwood Court in Liverpool and Alexandra Court in Dovercourt, Essex. We also redeveloped the centre of Auchlochan Garden Village in South Lanarkshire, bringing new services to residents including 24 new apartments offering flexible care and support, a café bistro and a hair and beauty salon.

2013 promises to be more exciting still, as we will be celebrating our 70th birthday. We have already had messages of goodwill and congratulations from supporters including Dame Judi Dench, Tony Robinson, Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu, Baroness Joan Bakewell and more. Our Thanksgiving Service at Coventry Cathedral is on Wednesday 17 April will be echoed in celebrations at our homes and schemes all over the country, and our annual Methodist Homes Sunday on 9 June will take our Platinum anniversary as its theme. We look forward to opening new services for older people, such as the upcoming Assisted Living scheme Victoria Court in Headingley, Leeds.

We have come a long way since our beginning in 1943. Together with residents, relatives, staff, volunteers and supporters, we look forward to a successful 2013, and many more years of serving and caring for as many older people as we can reach.
