We support older people to be as independent as possible, to celebrate and have the best quality of life they possibly can.
We do this by putting on all sorts of activities right across our area to encourage people to get out and about and get involved in anything from creative writing to Zumba.
We also visit people in their own homes offering a friendly chat.
We are a small, local charity – our work wouldn’t be possible without our 100 wonderful volunteers.
We have 8 staff and we are managed by a board of trustees.

Testimonials from our members
"I first got involved after my husband and my mother died very close to each other and I got very depressed. I was sent help from the NHS and one of the support workers persuaded me to go to EXTEND exercise. What a revelation. I met very friendly and like minded people who encouraged me to join the theatre group. I then joined the creative writing group. Now I’m a volunteer too. I help in the office and am a friendly visitor as well as joining in other activities. Joining MAECare and meeting their friendly members has made my life so worthwhile, unlike a few years ago, when it felt it was worthless."
"Last year my husband had to go into a home because he has dementia. I found it very lonely being on my own. I had a phone call from MAECare and it changed my life completely. One of the staff asked if I would like to join in MAECare activities. There is never a dull moment and I have made so many friends."
"If it wasn’t for MAEcare my life would be rather boring. Not having a car means I need things local. I very much enjoy the art class, creative writing and the swimming club. The Thursday club is good we have had some good entertainers and speakers. It’s reassuring to know there is somewhere to come for information and help with problems."
