About Moorlands Home Link

Moorlands Home Link was launched in May 1990, (as Cheadle & District Live at Home Scheme), following a survey of elderly people by the Neighbourhood Forum and using a pilot scheme run by Methodist Homes for the Aged.
In 1993 it absorbed the Day Centre started by Cheadle Methodist Church in 1986.

In January 1998 Cheadle & District Home Link Scheme became a charity in its own right. Later came the name change to ‘Moorlands Home Link’ as the area of operation increased.

Moorlands Home Link provides older, particularly housebound, people in the Staffordshire Moorlands access to services to maintain their health and wellbeing; whether this is through socialisation at our Day Centre, one of our Outreach Groups or one-to-one befriending; through our Domiciliary Care and Bathing Services; or through any of the other services we provide.

These services (more information on which can be found on our services page) help to build up a network of contacts, provide monitoring and “early warning” systems, and have a “knock-on” effect on a person’s ability to remain living at home and independent.
