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.
This is one of our favorite afternoons. We love getting our residents up and moving to the music they love. Not only is it a natural medication for joints, bones and muscle strength, it also works wonders on mental health.

You may remember before Christmas, on our Facebook page, we gave you the task of choosing between two fine Gingerbread creations to see which of our two items were going to come out on top and be voted Gingerbread Champions for 2019.
Well the results are in, and firstly thank you to everyone who took part and registered a vote – we had a terrific response.
Now for the all important numbers and we can report that it is The Valleys with their Gingerbread Train who take a narrow win by 329 votes to 270 for the Gingerbread Sleigh made by Bunkers Hill.
We can promise you that both tasted just as good as the other, and for the gingerbread lovers in our homes there is keen anticipation of next year’s contest!
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!
Earlier last week we held our Christmas Party at The Valleys. We had some fabulous entertainment and a great singer with some wonderful Christmas songs that we could all join in with – there was even some dancing! There were plenty of games to keep us amused and the kitchen laid on a wonderful tea.
We wish it was Christmas Party time every day!
On Saturday 7th December The Valleys hosted a Pop Up Cafe coffee morning in aid fo the Good Grief Trust – an organisation that supports bereaved people to cope with the grieving process.
It was an excellent event and helped raise awareness of what can be a difficult subject to talk about.
We would like to thank everyone who took part and hope that this will be the first of many such mornings.
