MHA - Ealing Live at Home

*** Coronavirus - Important Notice ***

We will also be suspending our MHA Ealing Live at Home Schemes activities to help support the efforts being made to delay the spread of the coronavirus. We will be contacting our members by telephone to offer a daily welfare call to make sure they are okay. We are also contacting all providers, teachers etc to cancel all classes and will keep everyone informed and any future changes.

Latest information is available on the coronavirus information page on NHS website where you can also find more information and  advice on coronavirus and FAQs that will enable us to safeguard our elderly members.

MHA will publish further information on its website - click here.

 

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.

MHA - Ealing Live at Home is a partnership between Ealing Trinity Methodist Circuit, Methodist Homes (MHA) and the London Borough of Ealing. Together we are working towards promoting independence and well-being amongst older folk across the Borough of Ealing.

MHA - Ealing Live at Home provides social contact and support for older people in the Borough who wish to continue living at home without becoming isolated. The scheme enables people to live a more fulfilled life by offering opportunities for companionship, trusted support and advice when you need it.

This page gives details of our current activities. We’ll be adding more as time goes by.

Get Up and Go Strength & Balance Programme

As we get older the chances of having a fall increase. The Get Up and Go Strength and Balance Programme is for people over the age of 65 who have had falls or loss of balance, have a fear of falling or who just want to improve their strength and balance. The programme is designed to help reduce your chances of falling and to help you get back on your feet and regain confidence after a fall.
