My Home Life

Our vision is a world where all care homes for older people are great places to live, die, visit and work.

About us

ASHLEY_HOUSE_MICHELLE_001

My Home Life is a UK-wide initiative that promotes quality of life and delivers positive change in care homes for older people.

We work with care homes, statutory bodies, community organisations and others to co-create new ways of working to better meet the needs of older people, relatives and staff.

Our vision is a world where care homes are great places to live, die, visit and work; where care homes are:

  • Supported to deliver to their potential
  • Valued and trusted by those who work with them
  • Cherished by their local communities

My Home Life is supported by all the national providers of residential care and the Relatives and Residents Association.
