In this section you can read some of the research reports which make up the evidence base for the best practice vision of My Home Life. Other reports the MHL team have collaborated on, and which provide evidence of the efficacy of the MHL approach are also included in this section.

In 2006, more than 60 academics from across the UK worked together on a review of the literature on good quality of life in care homes. The evidence brought together in this review went on to form the basis of the My Home Life vision and the work we are still doing to make this vision a reality. Click on ‘My Home Life Literature Review’ to download a full copy of the review and the report which analyses its findings, along with an executive summary.
