Our values

We have a set of five values that are most relevant to brighterkind, and these values define 'how' we do our jobs each day. This is important in helping create a unique culture within brighterkind - what it means to work here and what is expected of all of us. Values are only useful if they're lived and breathed in our everyday life. And it is each person's responsibility to demonstrate them.

The values are at the heart of everything we do and say: the DNA of brighterkind.

Recreation & Activity

Our Magic Moments recreation and activities programme aims to encourage wellbeing by concentrating in equal measure on the mind, through mental agility; the body, through fitness and mobility; and the soul, through entertainment and personal interests, continued learning and emotional engagement. Right from the beginning we try to get an understanding of our residents, finding out about their life story and getting to know the things they would really like to do via our Wishing Well Programme, so that we can help to make their wishes a reality and bring a little magic into their lives.

Restaurant-style dining

Our dining rooms are always set to restaurant standards, with daily menus for you to make your selection, and wine served with dinner. It’s a popular social time in our homes, where residents come together to share stories and enjoy the delicious food.

Our magic moments

At brighterkind we believe in living life to the full. That’s why we do our upmost to ensure that our residents have access to a varied programme of activities to deliver the Magic Moments that will help them love every day.

We believe that real care cannot be delivered until we completely understand the person being cared for. We will work together to create a lifestyle that suits the resident; that aims to make our residents happy and healthy. The four principles of brighterkind care:

Identity - We implement a personalised care plan so residents can get on with having fun and being them.

Independence - We encourage residents to do the things they enjoy and live every day as you wish.

Collaboration - We embrace resident opinions and ideas, and will involve residents in every decision about their care.

Community - We foster a strong social bond between residents, staff and the wider community.
