    Day Care Barge Trip

    Posted by Birdston Day Care Centre

    Day Care residents had a fun day on the water with the Seagull Trust, sailing from Kirkintilloch Marina to Cadder and back, enjoying their tea and biscuits along the way.

    The lovely weather certainly made the trip delightful along with Betty McAloon reminiscing about her childhood and telling staff and her friends that she used to swim in the canal when she was younger.

    Rae Stirling lives on the side of the canal and told us how she used to watch her kids play along the side. She has seen a few sights in her day though... once a lady was putting a 3 piece suite in the canal and when Rae asked her not to her reply was “well do you want the suite?”

    Everyone remarked what a super day it was filled with a good few laughs and good company.

Pacific Care

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
