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

With the warm weather, we wanted to share our memories of summer past… Perhaps your residents, relatives and staff might like to share their own memories? We’d love to hear them.
• Summertime fun from childhood – picnics down by the river, daisies in your hair, watching Dad fall asleep in a deckchair
• The Great British Seaside – rides on the donkeys, cheerful beach huts, ice cream running down your chin, staring into rock pools for hours, and sand everywhere!
• Everyone loves strawberries with Wimbledon but what about memories of shelling peas for Mother, working holidays to help with harvests, ice cold lemonade…
Happy summertime to you all!

Check your post! Our new bulletin on Supporting Dignity is OUT NOW – with Care Management Matters magazine or available to download.

Next month – an exciting new development from MHL.

All the best,
The My Home Life Team
