As we age, our bodies undergo numerous changes, making us more vulnerable to various health challenges. One such threat is sepsis, a severe medical condition that occurs when the body's response to an infection triggers a chain reaction, leading to widespread inflammation throughout the body. This condition can be life threatening, especially for older people due to weakened immune systems and age-related health issues.
At brighterkind, we're more than just a care home group. We're a community woven together in the shared goal of making life for our resident’s lives as happy and fulfilling as possible. One way we're achieving this through the delivery of Pet Therapy as part of our Magic Moments activities programme.
Spring has finally arrived and with it comes a fresh new beginning. Here at brighterkind, we are excited to announce the launch of our brand new Easter menus!
“Say cheese…” a click and a flash… a special moment has been captured.

At this time of year these clever creatures are already looking for food and shelter to make a home for the coming months. Join us in helping our buzzy friends by creating the perfect bee hotel.
Not to be underestimated, bumble bees have one of the most important jobs in our eco system – pollinating vast numbers of flowers and crops for the benefit of their fellow animals and us humans too. In fact, without their services, many of our wildflowers and crops such as beans, peas, raspberries and tomatoes would struggle to reproduce.
Music is a creative outlet that has the power to bring people together and improve health and wellbeing.
Best friends are some of the most important people in our lives; in celebration of Best Friends Day we are remembering the importance of a true friendship much like Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, Ant and Dec and even Scooby and Shaggy!
Whatever your age, it’s important to do some form of physical activity every day, but it’s particularly important as we get older.
In celebration of World Whisky Day, we thought we would touch on what a drink with friends can provide. At any age, companionship is an important part of staying healthy and happy and has a positive impact on our mental health, but this is especially so in later years when your mobility may be limited and there isn’t the same opportunity to ‘go out’.
In the lead up to National Biscuit Day, our brighterkind care homes have put their aprons on and pulled out the baking trays.
