Robert Gordon University (RGU) is taking forward the My Home Life programme in Scotland to build upon their work and support care homes in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The university is launching the partnership with an online event today, to celebrate the programme’s decade-long legacy in the country and explore how best to help all care settings going forward.
My Home Life is a UK-wide initiative to promote quality of life for those living, dying, visiting, and working in care homes. Its approach is underpinned by people co-developing best practices, focussing on relationships, working appreciatively, and having caring conversations.
The university joins an international movement with partner organisations in England (City, University of London), Wales (Swansea University and Age Cymru), Northern Ireland (University of Ulster), Australia (South Australian Innovation Hub) and Germany (Josef and Luise Kraft Foundation).
Leading the initiative in Scotland is newly appointed Director RGU’s Professor Catriona Kennedy. Former Director Professor Belinda Dewar OBE has been awarded an honorary visiting professorship at RGU and will be supporting the university with its development.
RGU launch of My Home Life Scotland takes place on Monday, 21 March from 11 am to 1 pm. If you’d like to join, you can register here.
