Improving people’s lives in Northern Ireland

Housing with care
at Kirk House


Some of our residents and staff had decided that they wished to celebrate Remembrance Day at the Ulster Museum in Belfast and see the beautiful Weeping Window instalation. This amazing instalation consists of several thousand of handmade ceramic poppies pouring from a high window to the ground below.

The residents and the staff members really enjoyed the outing and the day was very emotional for everybody.

The photographs below were taken on the day at Ulster Museum.

Kirk House and Ulster University’s Northern Ireland Connected Health Innovation Centre (NI-CHIC) have been working together to explore Age Friendly Innovation as part of an Invest NI funded research project. The project seeks to improve care for residents using innovative technology in a care setting.

BCM has been working in partnership with the University of Ulster and will hold the Age Friendly Innovation Workshop on Thursday 19th October at Kirk House.

Congratulations to the whole team at Kirk House who won the Independent Health Care Team Award and to Andrea, Kirk House Manager who was the runner-up in the Leadership Award. 

Independent Health and Care Providers (ihcp) is a non-profit making organisation representing private, voluntary, charitable and church affiliated providers of health and social care.
