My Home Life

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

Health, Social Care and Housing Professionals

How we work with you

Through the Integrated Care programme as part of our Transformation Package (more information here), My Home Life brings together care home managers and representatives from the wider health, social care and housing system. In these sessions, My Home Life acts as a broker to help establish better partnership working and identify shared local issues to work on together. You can read about an example of one of these meetings on the Buckinghamshire County Council website.

“My Home Life is assisting us in bringing about a cultural change in how we work with local residential and nursing home providers. The role of the council and health in working with providers is becoming clearer. Through facilitation by My Home Life, we have all begun to examine how we need to change in order to bring about better services for very vulnerable residents.”

“My Home Life…helped the authority in providing a mechanism through which to explore some difficult issues such as improvements in discharge from hospital, access to a fuller range of health and social services, and protocols for accessing equipment. I would strongly recommend My Home Life and feel that it has much much more to offer – as the potential to build on its foundation is enormous, and the benefits clearly cascade down… to the residents.”
