A Year in Our Lives 2020



We are proud to launch a new resource:

Saying goodbye – A Resource for Care Homes


Our lives have changed dramatically over recent months, even more so for those living and working in care homes. How we cope with loss for ourselves and everyone around us has become more challenging than ever.


This new resource aims to support you to acknowledge the losses you, your colleagues and the people you support are experiencing during the Covid – 19 Pandemic. We believe Activity and Care teams can play a vital role in coordinating essential activity related to saying goodbye.


In collaboration with leaders in this field, we have put together some information to guide you through alternative ways in which we can give bereavement support and remember those we have lost.


We would like to say thank you to all our contributors.
