Welcome to My Home Life Essex
My Home Life Essex is all about celebrating good quality of care for older residents in Essex care homes.
Losing your independence
This website is an opportunity for us, as care home managers, to share good practice and support initiatives that improve the quality of life of care home residents, visitors and staff.
My Home Life is sponsored by Essex Council, with direction from Age (UK) and the private sector. But, ultimately it is our project. This is a chance for us to exchange ideas and participate actively in the My Home Life movement.
If you are interested in developing the site, we’d love to hear from you!
