    Love is a Many a Splendored Thing

    Posted by Birdston Care Home

    BNH Chinese

    Birdston Nursing Home residents and family went all oriental for this month's themed meal, using the renowned movie, Love Is A Many Splendored Thing – Filmed in Hong Kong in 1955, to help set the scene.

    Set in 1949–50 in Hong Kong, the movie tells the story of a married, but separated, American reporter Mark Elliot (played by William Holden), who falls in love with a Eurasiandoctor Han Suyin originally from China (played by Jennifer Jones), only to encounter prejudice from her family and from Hong Kong society.

    Head Chef Aidan & staff provided a delicious Chinese banquet and to help get the residents into the evening's theme the dining room was transformed into a Hong Kong restaurant!

    Resident Harold Harpur’s said "The movie is one of my favourite films; we've all enjoyed the evening and meal very much."

Pacific Care Suspends Visiting to Care Homes March 2020

As part of our preventative Coronavirus preparations, Pacific Care has suspended visiting to our care homes.

Managing Director, Brendan Brawley said, “Our residents wellbeing is of paramount importance to us, so we have implemented a package of measures to protect our vulnerable residents. We have liaised with all residents and their families and they are supportive of the measures we are putting in place to protect their loved ones. These are preventative measures only and we are following guidance from the NHS.

We have not taken this decision lightly and appreciate this may cause some discomfort, but we feel it is sensible to take these precautionary measures at this time.”

Additional employee health and hygiene protocols are now in place and any non-essential visitors to the care home are now suspended. Residents and their families have been notified and understand the exceptional conditions of the current environment. Provisions have been put in place to ensure family members have regular contact with their loved ones through phone calls, FaceTime and Skype.

Best Wishes,
Brendan Brawley
Managing Director
