    Health, Nursing and Midwifery: My Home Life Open Programme

    The School of Health, Nursing and Midwifery runs the following year-long open cohort:

    The My Home Life Vision

    Our vision is a world where care homes are great places to live, die, visit and work; where care homes are:

    • Supported to deliver their potential
    • Valued and trusted by those who work with them
    • Cherished by their local communities

    My Home Life (MHL) is a UK-wide initiative that promotes quality of life and delivers positive change in care homes for older people. We work with care homes, statutory bodies, community organisations and others to co-create new ways of working to better meet the needs of older people, relatives and staff. It is led nationally by City University, London in partnership with Age UK, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Dementia UK. In Scotland the programme is delivered by the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) in partnership with Scottish Care and Age Scotland.

    It is a collaborative scheme bringing together organisations which reflect the interests of care home providers, commissioners, regulators, care home residents and relatives and those interested in education, research and practice development.
