    In order to mark Dignity in Care 2018, Lillyburn Care Home near Kirkintilloch held a “Digni-Tea” to raise awareness and highlight the importance of dignity in care.

    Members of the local community which included local councillors, Kirkintilloch Baptist Church, Caretas, and staff from the EDLC were invited to take part in the event. Residents, families, friends and staff joined the visitors to enjoy a delicious afternoon tea which was prepared by the Chef John and his team. Children from the local Primary also helped in preparing the afternoon tea for the event.

    During the event, each table of attendees was asked to write a few lines about what dignity means to them and discuss their answers. The cards were gathered and will be displayed on Lillyburn’s dignity board over the following week.

    Resident John Caulder discovered that one of the Local Councillors had attended the Scripture Union with him many years ago and they both very much enjoyed the catch-up.

    John Hood, our maintenance man, gave a brief speech on the importance of raising awareness about the Dignity in Care campaign and urged everyone to become Dignity Champions.

    Tommy reported that he thoroughly enjoyed the tea today. His sister also attended and said she had a lovely afternoon.

    Lillyburn would like to thank everyone who took time out of their day to come along and support them. The event was a success and Lillyburn has done its part raising awareness about dignity in 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
