MHA helps older people live later life well

Imagine what it would be like to not see or speak to anyone for days or even weeks. It’s a frightening situation to contemplate but it is the reality for many local older people. Loneliness and isolation is a growing, often hidden problem which can lead to severe mental and physical deterioration, increased GP and hospital visits and even suicide.

Portsmouth and Havant Live at Home is a charity that enables people to live later life well, be more active, socially engaged and happier by providing activities in the community. People can choose from:

Weekly activities e.g., Singing for Fun, Steady & Strong Exercise classes and Dementia Friendly singing groups, Monthly outings, an annual holiday, Christmas party, newsletters and birthday and Christmas cards.

We currently have a number of activity groups running in Havant, Waterlooville and Emsworth:

Wednesdays Singing for Fun - 11.15 to 12.45  at the Waterlooville Community Centre (ASDA car park)

Wednesdays - Steady & Strong exercise - 2.15 to 3.45 at the Waterlooville Baptist Church (London Road)

Thursdays - Steady & Strong exercise - 10.30 to 12.00 at the Beacon Church (Meridian Centre Havant)
