What is My Home Life

My Home Life is a UK-wide movement for quality of life in care homes. It is here to support the sector, celebrate positive practice and communicate the vital role that care services play for our frailest citizens.

My Home Life have developed a bespoke Leadership & Professional Support Programme for care home managers. 1200 managers from across the UK have already joined the Programme and are using it to help drive forward evidence-based, relationship-centred care in their homes.

Outcomes reported by managers currently on the programme include:

  • Increased resilience, less at risk of burn-out • Strong connections with other like-minded managers
  • Advancement of skills and strategies to drive forward transformational change
  • A calmer more relational environment to live and work
  • Improved staff morale and commitment Improved relationships with staff, residents, relatives and external agencies

Your opportunity to get a free place on this unique programme!
Thanks to funding from the West Midlands Patient Safety Collaborative, this high profile programme is now FREE for care home managers working with older people across two local authority areas across the West Midlands.

How does it work?
Over nine months a group of 18 care home managers from one LA/CCG area will work together, guided by professional facilitators to advance skills, resolve complex everyday issues that impact the quality of their service and learn from best practice.

My Home Life work with managers at all levels to facilitate personal and professional growth, leading to change. This is a continuous programme of learning and reflection, supported by colleagues, with an intention of improving practice. The sessions are confidential to allow people to feel able to be open and honest.

What commitment is required from managers?
This 9-month programme begins with a four-day workshop (delivered across 2 months), followed by monthly action learning / QI sessions (over 6 months) and a final half-day completion session (4 full-days and 7 half-days over 9 months in total).

Recognising how busy care homes are, there is minimal course work required outside of facilitated sessions.
