Live at Home Schemes aim to tackle loneliness in later life by providing a variety of community activities that promote social inclusion including exercise classes and day trips, lunch and breakfast clubs, assisted shopping and befriending services
Music is truly magical - it can alleviate isolation and the symptoms for those living with dementia by helping to unlock special memories and express emotions and feelings that other forms of communication cannot, even if the individual is no longer able to speak or respond to other people’s words
With almost 75% of older people in the UK identifying as lonely and more than half of those saying they have never spoken to anyone about how they feel, loneliness is a growing epidemic that can no longer be swept under the carpet
Over 4,000 volunteers with different skills and backgrounds help MHA do more. Our volunteers are vital to our success and do so much to help enrich the lives of older people in our care
MHA is a national charity governed by a voluntary board. As we do not have shareholders we are able to invest every penny of our surplus, along with any charitable income raised and donated by amazing people like you, into maintaining and developing new services for the benefit of older people.
