    Mosswood resident, William Stewart, was awarded the defence and war medal as a result of his service in the Second World War. Upon hearing that his grandfather had not received his medals in the 1940’s, Andrew contacted the MOD who later approved William’s application and acknowledged his service as a Leading Hand Electrical Engineer during World War Two sending William’s medals to the family. To William’s surprise, his family had organised a presentation at Mosswood where James Gaughan – chairman of the Royal British Legion Paisley Comrades Club – presented the medals.

    Delighted with his medals William said that the presentation brought back, “so many good memories from those days”, and that the presentation was a, “lovely surprise”. Following on, with his medals pinned to his blazer, William and his family enjoyed a wee dram, tea, and cake delighted in sharing stories of his experience during the War.

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
