My Home Life is grounded in the real day-to-day experience of care homes but informed by the evidence-base for quality in care homes. We provide a range of training, research and consultancy to help best practice emerge in care homes.
Our new offer for 2020 and beyond
We’re delighted to have launched our new, flexible programme for 2020 and beyond. It is built around our guiding principles of relationship-centred care, caring conversations, appreciative inquiry and building on best practice. Read more here.
We work with you to create opportunities to develop reflective learning and insight. By identifying the actions necessary to implement the evidence base for best practice, we help you deliver care that is based on the My Home Life vision.
We have a wealth of experience working with care homes to enhance relationships between residents, relatives and staff and also between care homes and their local community, including the wider health and social care system.

Spotlight on our My Home Life Transformation Package
Care home managers are pivotal to the delivery of quality. My Home Life has worked with nearly 2000 care home managers over the past 10 years. We support care home managers on their journey of personal and professional development so that they can be inspired to lead practice development in care homes. We do this by helping them to be evidence-informed, relational, appreciative and focused on action. Outcomes of our work can be found on this link
