Stay Connected to the My Home Life movement and download the new My Home Life App today

Each Monday those signed up to the free My Home Life app will receive a message; it may be a thought, a top tip, an action or a question. The words in the messages have been developed from our learning across the four UK nations about what makes a difference to enhancing the quality of lives of those living, working and visiting care homes.

We hope that these messages will be a source of surprise, encouragement and support to those who receive them on a Monday morning. Everyone is welcome to sign up for this free app, it would be great if you let residents, relatives, colleagues, family and friends know about it.

We hope you enjoy them and feel able to use them in your care home to prompt discussion and innovation. Anyone interested in signing up for this app can do so by following the instructions below:

The apps can be downloaded from the Google and Android app stores.

Android/Google: Access on Android devices is via the Google Play app store – search for “My Home Life”. The developer is recorded as SCET. Link here:

iOS: In a similar way the iOS app can be found by browsing the itunes or Apple app store from an iPhone or iPod touch. Link here:

Unfortunately this app is currently unavailable with Windows phones.

We’d be delighted to hear from you, now or in the future, with any questions/comments/ suggestions you have in relation to the app, you can contact Edel by email
