Summer email update from MHL


The current edition of our practice update is out now – sign up for your free email update here.

This month, the email update features the new My Home Life app. You can now get weekly MHL messages – direct to your phone or mobile device.

Dear friends,

Announcing – the new My Home Life smartphone app!

Through the new free My Home Life app, every Monday you 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 different to enhancing the quality of lives of those living, dying, visiting and working in care homes.

Everyone is welcome to sign up – we hope that these messages will be a source of surprise, encouragement and support to everyone.

The app can be downloaded from the Android to Apple app stores:App images

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

Apple: In a similar way the app for Apple devices can be found by searching the iTunes or Apple app store for iPhones, iPads and iPods.

Unfortunately this app is currently unavailable on Windows phones.

We hope you enjoy the app and feel able to use the messages at work to prompt discussion and innovation – and do spread the word to others.

Next update: we would like to hear your stories about inspections

Best wishes,

The My Home Life team
