My Home Life features in Dignity in Care report

My Home Life were very excited to see their work be presented as part of the The Commission on Improving Dignity in Care public consultation on a report, which will form the basis of proposals for improvements in the delivery of care of older people in hospitals and care homes.

We are mentioned in the section of recommendations of creating a caring community (pg24):

Care homes need to work with residents to create an environment that make their lives happy, varied, stimulating, fulfilling and dignified. Being a caring community must be the overarching principle that guides home life. The My Home Life movement (see case study) aims to support care home managers in achieving this.

It also includes a quote from one of our Care Home managers:

‘I feel uplifted and motivated; it’s not the usual focus on evidence and outcomes, it’s about feeling supported and connected with everyone and growing my own leadership skills.’

You can see more information and download the report from Age UK.
