As a resident or a relative of someone living in a care home, you are in an ideal position to have an opinion on your good quality of life and how good practice can help to support this.

We are always on the lookout for great stories from people living in and visiting care homes. If you would like to share a ‘good practice’ story, please get in touch: mhl@city.ac.uk or give Jess on the My Home Life team a ring on 020 7040 0260.
