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.
Following last weeks heartfelt and touching applause that rang out across the country United Health are again proud to join in the nationwide campaign to get people to clap for everyone who is working so hard to keep us healthy; doctors, nurses; GPs; Pharmacists, Care Home staff, home carers and EVERYONE related at the front line.
Let us all show how grateful we still are for their hard work and dedication at 8pm tonight!

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.
As we bid farewell to 2019 and welcome in 2020, we want to take time to wish all our residents, staff, relatives, friends, neighbours and colleagues a very Happy New Year.
We hope that it will be a good year for you all, and that you are able to keep all the resolutions you have made!
We hope you enjoyed our posts on social media over the Christmas period, and one of our resolutions for 2020 is to make sure we keep you entertained with exciting news throughout the coming year.
If from reading our page over the last year you have any suggestions as to how we can improve our content then please do send them to us. We already have some ideas of our own….but it would be great to get some from our readers.
We look forward to hearing from you in 2020!
We would like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and a Peaceful and Prosperous New Year.
In particular we would like to send best wishes to all our staff who are working so hard today to make sure that all our residents who need care and support have the best Christmas possible.
We would also like to send our best wishes to the many relatives and friends who also give of themselves to help support loved ones.
Wishing you all the love and light this Christmas!
This morning – it being Halloween and all – we thought we would indulge in some fab Pumpkin Carving. Take pity on our poor Manager Chris who had the unenviable task of choosing a winning Pumpkin.
It was a close run thing but the winner was Alison with her Vampire Pumpkin. All the residents and staff had great fun – onto Halloween celebrations now!
As a company that helps and supports people with mental health difficulties we believe that it is crucially important that we recognise World Mental Health Day today.
This is a day for global mental health education, awareness and for people and organisations like ours, to advocate against the social stigma that often attaches itself to people who are living with poor mental health. It was first celebrated in 1992 at the initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health, a global mental health organization with members and contacts in more than 150 countries.
We recognise that people should feel OK about saying when they can’t handle everything on their own, and that it’s important that they feel free in our society to do so. We would urge everyone who may be struggling to take a minute to remember that it’s okay to need others and to reach out for help.
That’s what we are here for – to help people when they need us.
Today is Professional Care Workers Day and so we would love you all to take a moment to send a big thank you to our wonderful staff to acknowledge the amazing work that they do.
The care, compassion, empathy and dedication, come rain or shine makes such a difference.
Thank you to everyone who makes what we do possible.
Earlier this month on the 2nd May we held a special event at the Kelham House Hotel.
All the managers of the group attended a dinner to celebrate both Chris Looms and Jayne Dempsey’s 20 years service with United Health.
Chris started with the company in April 1999 as the Manager of our then brand new Coppice & Oakside home, and Jayne started as a Care Assistant in early May 1999.
Since then they have both made invaluable contributions to the homes they have worked at as well as the wider company.
Mandy our MD commented:
“I feel exceptionally proud to have worked with Chris and Jayne for the last 20 years, seeing them develop professionally at first hand. What they stand for is everything we want as an organisation: professionalism, an amazing work ethic, but above all else total dedication to delivering excellent care to the people they support.”
Everyone who attended had a lovely time and there were some great memories recalled from the past two decades. Thank you Chris and Jayne, and here’s to the next 20!
