    Accordionist Mervyn, joined the Kintyre suite at Lillyburn this afternoon, much to the residents delight. Mervyn got the party going, encouraging the residents to sing and dance to his Scottish and Irish songs, regaling everyone along the way with some funny stories from his recent trip to the Outer Hebrides; everyone had a good old laugh!

    As a regular visitor to Kintyre, Mervyn knows some of the residents well and played their favourite tunes. Margaret and Mary took to the floor and had great fun dancing to the Scottish Country Dances, while Hugh sang along to his favourite music.

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
