    Tea in the Park

    Posted by Lillyburn Care Home

    No Lillyburn did not take half a dozen residents to a muddy field and dance all weekend to live music (although we think most would probably enjoy that!) This Tea in the Park was an event organised by Alzheimer’s Scotland to acknowledge Dementia Awareness Week.

    The event held at The Alona Hotel – Strathclyde Park was hosted by Radio Clyde DJ Dave Marshall who along with Musical Memories showed pictures and played music clips from all the old favourites over the years.

    Of course you can’t have Tea in the Park without a cuppa and the 6 residents and staff who accompanied them enjoyed a fabulous Afternoon Tea of Sandwiches, Cakes and Scones with fresh cream and raspberries. This sparked an interesting conversation between those attending, especially Kirsty Swinton who reminisced about the old Tea Rooms she used to go to in Glasgow.

    Unfortunately nobody won at the Raffle that was held but luck was already on their side by the fact they made it to the event in one piece! Home Manager Ann McKinnon had to step in and save the day by driving the Mini Bus to Strathclyde Park as there was no driver available! Well Done to Ann for being brave enough to drive…and well done to the residents who were brave enough to get in the back of the bus!

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
