brighterkind named as Residential Care Provider of the Year 2017
brighterkind are celebrating their part in winning the national award for “residential care provider of the year 2017.”
Each of our homes has “Magic Moments”, which is a varied programme of recreation, activities and entertainment, together with a “Wishing Well” scheme, which fulfils wishes for individual residents, to experience something they have long wanted to do or to be taken somewhere they want to visit.
The judges described these programmes, which feature in all brighterkind homes as “inspirational.” They also commended it for enabling a positive team culture and giving its people the skills and empowering them to deliver the organisational values, which are summed up in its theme of “love every day.” The judges said: “What more could you want? Simple, from the heart; every moment matters, be happy and sort it.”
Jeremy Richardson, CEO of brighterkind said “Our Magic Moments programme is planned to promote a sense of wellbeing and above all to be enjoyable. Our activities coordinators organise a varied programme including exercise classes that help to keep older people fit and mobile; musical events and sing alongs; arts, crafts and hobbies; games, entertainers and outings. We also host events for relatives and friends in the community. We remember always that this our residents’ home. We consult them about how they want to be cared for; about the sorts of activities and entertainments they want and when planning menus for the dining room.”
The national award programme is run in conjunction with Health Investor magazine.
