    EDLC Training

    Lillyburn Care Home staff, relatives and volunteers took part in Walk Leader Training with Andy Lynch from the EDLC. The training was informative and helped staff plan potential dementia friendly walks for our residents.

    The walk was a leisurely stroll around the Loch in Milngavie. The rain didn’t stop the group from enjoying the scenery and wildlife. Everyone agreed how nice it was to get out and about.

    Mary used to like walking round the Loch, and did so many times before coming to Lillyburn so she particularly enjoyed today. 

    Anna said ‘it takes more than a little rain to put me off walking’ and she gave us all advice on the walking shoes we need to buy.

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
