About Us

MAECare (Moor Allerton Elderly Care) was formed in 1995 by Churches Together in Moor Allerton and Shadwell. In 2008 we became independent although we still maintain strong links with local churches.

Our goals are:

  • To improve the quality of life for local older people who are over 60 regardless of religion, belief, race, disability, gender or sexual orientation.
  • To act as a link to existing services and seek to address unmet needs.
  • To treat each older person as an individual with the right to make his/her own choices and be as independent as possible.
  • To accept and value each individual older person, volunteer and employee.

Here is a short video about MAECare:
