�€�5,000 older people living in our care homes, many receiving specialist dementia or nursing care
�€�2,000 older people living independently in purpose-built apartments, with access to social and leisure facilities and flexible care should they need it
�€�9,000 older people living independently in their own homes with the support of our Live at Home schemes across the UK.
We rely on the commitment and dedication of 7,000 staff and 4,000 volunteers who share our values. Together we aim to provide more quality housing, care and support services to meet the needs of more older people across the country.

Would you like to make a positive contribution to the welfare of older people?
Spiritual well-being — distinct from religious affiliation or belief — as a universal need, is a cornerstone of MHA's positive approach to ageing and we aim to provide the highest quality care and support for older people of all faiths and none.
You will build good working relationships with local faith communities and take the lead on pastoral care, spiritual and worship aspects of life within these care homes.
You will need to be in good standing with your own faith community.
An empathetic understanding of spiritual aspects of ageing and dementia, demonstrated through experience of providing pastoral care and, ideally, leading services, is essential.
