    Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities. Thousands of care homes in the UK take part, welcoming the public and arranging events and activities that help create lasting links between care home residents and their local communities. We celebrated National Care Home Open Day this year in conjunction with the “Big Lunch’ which is the UK’s annual get together for friends and neighbours.

    Alzheimer’s Scotland was in attendance and said they were very impressed with the event and commented on how hard the staff had worked to make the Open Day/Big Lunch special.

    Family, friends, staff and members of the local community including Kirkintilloch High School, Alzheimer’s Scotland, St Paul’s parish church, Kirkintilloch Baptist Church attend the event and comments were made about how much they appreciated the invite and welcomed the opportunity to come and find out more about Lillyburn and spend quality time with residents and staff.

    Everyone enjoyed the “big lunch” which was a delicious 3-course meal provided by the Head Chef and his team.

    Some of our Housekeeping staff thoroughly enjoyed spending time with residents over lunch and said they felt it was a great way of getting to know residents better.

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
