At MHA we get to know each person: their story, family, life experiences and interests. We understand that everyone has spiritual needs – a need for meaning and purpose in life.

We believe that spiritual fulfilment feels different for each individual, ensures personal wellbeing and enables older people to live later life well. Religious faith, good relationships, hope and positive experiences all play their part.

MHA chaplains

We pride ourselves that every MHA care service is supported by a dedicated Chaplain, who may come from a range of denominations. Some are ordained ministers and others are lay people.

Chaplains provide a listening presence, companionship and one-to-one pastoral support for all residents, their friends and relatives, and staff members - irrespective of their beliefs - and organise worship for those who wish to participate. Where appropriate, residents are encouraged to maintain links with local faith communities.

Our Chaplain's adopt a person-centred approach and deliver support with warmth, compassion, humour, mutual respect, strength and hope, aiming to inspire and provide stimulation to those we serve.

End of life care

For many residents in our care homes, MHA will provide them with their last home. Our Chaplains hold an important role in helping residents and their relatives approach their final years with a sense of acceptance, peace and fulfilment.

A key part of our work has been the development of The Final Lap – an award-winning programme designed to make sure all MHA care homes are places where death and dying are faced openly, positively and with support.

Our staff are professionally trained to support residents and their families as they explore what the last days of life will mean for them, as well as for their friends and relatives and our staff and volunteers within the home.
