On 29th April 2021, My Home Life England held a national webinar entitled ‘Developing and Commissioning Quality in Care Homes During Times of Uncertainty’.
The webinar aimed to support attendees to deliver quality, sustainability and revisioning of care homes in their local area.
At the webinar we:
- brought together great ideas, evidence and experience from people who work in, support and connect to care homes for older people at local and national level
- built a picture of how quality of life in care homes has developed over the last 15 years and give some thoughts for the future
We are so grateful to the following contributors:
Deborah Sturdy (DHSC Chief Nurse for Adult Social Care), Angela Boxall and team from Majesticare, Blesson Thomas (Fremantle Trust), Cheryl Davis, Faye Sibley & Geoff Cooper (AHSN), Emma Self (NHS England), Jonny Kelville (Liverpool City Council) and Sheila Sorby (Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust).

Peer Support Programme
The webinar led to a follow up conversation in June, in which attendees discussed opportunities to support great quality of life for people who live, die, work in and visit care homes, as well as tips for supporting quality through commissioning.
As part of a range of support programmes that My Home Life England offers, we are now able to deliver support and development aimed at supporting individuals within Local Authorities, CCGs and integrated care systems, who have a remit for commissioning or promoting quality in care settings.
