A Bespoke Service

We work with you to develop and deliver bespoke learning packages tailored to meet the needs of your organisation. The focus is on sharing practical knowledge and implementing best practice across your organisation.

The My Home Life Transformation Package

The My Home Life Transformation Package has been developed and refined over the past six years through working with care homes in local authority areas across the UK. It has demonstrated significant impact on quality in care homes and has been profiled extensively in external reports.

The Package delivers the evidence-based framework for quality, translated into positive outcomes for older people living in care homes, relatives and staff and the wider community.

It combines three Programmes spread over 18 months.

  • Programme 1: Leadership Support
  • Programme 2: Integrated Care
  • Programme 3: Community Engagement

The approach works appreciatively with stakeholders to understand their challenges and provide supportive environments to bring about transformational change. It is typically commissioned by Local Authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups and providers.
