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
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.
Nutrition and Hydration Week has taken place every March since 2012.
