My Home Life

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

Communities and the Public

WALTON_ON_NAZE_726Making the decision to move into a care home can be a fantastic, positive move – and it can also be a decision that’s made in a background of anxiety, pain and confusion. It can be overwhelming trying to decide what you or your loved one would like and need from a new home and can leave you with a lot of questions.

My Home Life Cymru have prepared a check list of some of the kinds of questions you may have around making the choice which is the right residential care home for you and your loved one. This is based on the My Home Life themes of best practice, and is available as a free download.

If you’d like to learn what’s available near you, you can use http://www.carehome.co.uk/ to search for different types of housing with care.

Some care homes are also using Your care rating to measure quality of life – this survey is undertaken by people living in care homes across the UK to rate their care homes (though please note that not all care homes are currently participating in this survey).

England only

The care home inspection body in England, the Care Quality Commission, has published a guide which helps the public to understand its ‘Good’ rating for care homes and what that means.
