    Introducing Our Newest Therapet

    Posted by Mosswood Care Home

    Fiona and her dog Rosie have been visiting at Mosswood each month for quite a while now, so we were delighted when the Therapet service were able to allocate us a second dog, Molly.

    Gill now also brings along Molly, her springer spaniel, each fortnight to visit with the residents. The new dog is just getting to know us, but she seemed to enjoy meeting everyone and having a few treats.

    The Therapet visits are very popular with our residents; a chat with Fiona and Gill brightens up the residents’ day and they love to see the dogs and have an opportunity to pet them, bringing back fond memories of their own pets. Some residents enjoy walking the dogs with their owners around the unit or out in the gardens.

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
