    Lillyburn Care Home took part in Care Home Open Day on Saturday the 21st of April. A national initiative which encourages care homes to open their doors, with a few key values at its heart: friendship, making connections and celebrating older and vulnerable people.

    This year, the theme was ‘Linking Communities’, where each participating home aims to create stronger links with their local community. Lillyburn Care Home was joined by Karen of MiTunes, who entertained and encouraged everyone in a good old-fashioned sing song. The day was also the Queen’s 92nd birthday and residents were joined by neighbours from Birdston Day Care, who enjoyed making new friends with Lillyburn residents over a delicious, afternoon tea.

    Robert from Birdston Day Care commented “Our service users really enjoyed their visit today, it gave everyone a chance to meet new people and come together to celebrate the Queen’s birthday. We are all looking forward to our next joint venture.”

    Marie Galligan, Practice Development Co-ordinator said “National Care Home Open day is a great way to showcase all the great things that go on in care homes, all too often it’s only the negatives we hear about, but days like today can help boost morale, create a sense of togetherness and demonstrates the creativity and imagination present in care settings.”

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
