United Methodist Homes (UMH) was established in 1874 out of the vision of the members of a small church in West Haven, CT who cared deeply about helping the elders in their community and others in need.
Out of their caring, they had the foresight to collaborate in such a way that nearly 140-years later their vision continues to serve those in need.
UMH, as it stands today, is proud to carry on this tradition of caring for people across the continuum; seniors who are independent and those needing assistance, those rehabilitating from illness or surgery, younger adults with disabilities, and those living with dementia.
Positive relationships are critical to our well-being.
Through simple ways such as asking questions, really listening to what someone has to say, offering a genuine smile and caring touch of the hand we are able to connect with those we serve. We know that by creating caring relationships, we can help those we care for live meaningful lives.
