BCM recognises that all our staff , volunteers and our congregation, have the potential to encounter someone living with dementia, and it is important that we have confidence that we are all able to reflect an awareness of dementia both in and outside of work, home and church.

Congratulations to everyone at Kirk House as it has just been awarded a 'Top 20 Recommended Care Home 2017'.

Here are some photographs of Easter activities taking place at Kirk House. It was a great afternoon filled with laughter.

BCM Kirk House has been taking part in a pilot 'Connecting Care Homes' Project. The residents and young people from local schools and youth clubs were brought together by Linking Generations Northern Ireland, who are now competing for £50,000 of National Lottery Funding to make the project spread across Northern Ireland. The project connects care homes to their local community through bringing local schools and youth groups together with residents of the care home to complete a range of projects and activities, from arts, fashion, music, crafts and reminiscence.
