Growing the Movement
We’re working on building up the My Home Life movement, and improving the ways we support those involved in taking forward the MHL vision. We’d like to hear from you about how we can be supporting you – email firstname.lastname@example.org
At the moment we’re working on:
- Better communications and support to MHL Associates
- Improving support for managers who are interested in My Home Life but are yet to go through the Leadership programme
- Signposting relatives and members of the community to ways in which they might support their local care home.
Care homes in the heart of the community
One of the themes of good practice in care homes is ‘Creating community’, but often care homes can feel isolated from their local communities. We’re currently actively supporting engagement between care homes and their local communities in three areas – South Gloucestershire/Bristol, North East Lincolnshire, and Kent – so if you’re local, and interested in getting more involved with your local care homes, get in touch. Take a look at some fantastic community work already going on in Essex.
See our bulletin on Community Engagement for helpful advice and top tips for care homes. We’re also keen to hear about more successful examples across the country – please email them to email@example.com
