NOS’s guide on being kind is an essential read for all parents and children using the internet. It suggests disassociating yourself from pack mentality, learning self-empathy and how to offer help online.

The government is asking people who have a medical condition that makes them extremely vulnerable to coronavirus to register for help during the current situation. For example, you’ll be able to ask for help getting deliveries of essential supplies like food.
If you’re not sure whether your medical condition makes you extremely vulnerable, register anyway.You can register yourself, or on behalf of someone else.
We would urge all people who feel they may fall into the category of extremely vulnerable to register on the government site.
Here at Bunkers Hill our kitchen team has been working hard to personalise meals to meet our residents’ individual needs and tastes. Here is a picture of the sort of lovely meals that we have created so far – the work continues.
We have had some great feedback from our residents saying…
‘The new menu food looks so nice’ …..and
‘The kitchen are always happy to help with my meal choices, thank you’
As always we will try and do everything we can at the home to give individual attention to our residents and this certainly includes mealtimes and menu choices!
We are lucky enough to welcome The Good Grief Trust to Bunkers Hill.
Losing a loved one if one of the most difficult, confusing and lonely experiences of life and unfortunately many of our residents suffer.
The Good Greif Trust works hard to help people from all walks of life to get through this awful time by giving support, advice or just a chat. They help our residents see a brighter future and they know how it feels to lose a loved one and we think this is so important for a healthy and happy life.

Everyone is welcome to come along. Join us from 2.30pm.
We see a natural uplift in the moods and wellbeing of our residents when we put some music on and get moving.
Music is proven to bring about nostalgia and help unlock lost memories for the elderly and can help people living with dementia deal with the loss of memory.
