Friendship and what it means to me

To celebrate National Poetry Day we decided to create something very special for our Poetry Challenge. This challenge involved residents, relatives and team members. Each home was challenged to come up with a poem on the theme of 'Friendship And What It Means To Me'. This amazing opportunity built on the skills and knowledge from the Culture Workshops introduced for the Magic Moments Club team.

We have gathered together all of our favourite poems from the challenge and put them together in one flip book for you to enjoy.

Thank you to our local communities from all of us at brighterkind 

brighterkind homes say it with flowers and give thanks to their local communities 

On Friday 26th June, brighterkind care homes were set to celebrate their annual national Care Home Open day. Due to safety regulations put in place to ensure the health and wellbeing of residents, the care homes instead thanked their local communities for the support they have received over the last few months in particular, gifting wildflower seeds to those in their local area.

brighterkind and The Four Seasons Health Care Group have joined with researchers at UCL, alongside the Department of Health and Social Care, to launch the only major study into the impact of COVID-19 in care homes. Although there are many research studies investigating the impact of COVID-19 in the general population, this is the only one focused on those living and working in care homes.

How you and your family can benefit from a short respite care break

How you and your family can benefit from a short respite care break

Respite care is a short break in a care home, normally between one and two weeks, but it can be longer if required.

Often respite care is planned by a family member, so that they can take a holiday or take some time out from caring for an elderly loved one. Pink tea pot
