    Posted by Lillyburn Care Home

    The Alzheimer Scotland Dementia Awareness week took part on the 3-9th June this year and helped raise awareness of the importance of dementia research can have and the vital need for new research volunteers.

    In order to help raise awareness, Lillyburn invited Angi Inch of Alzheimer’s Scotland to facilitate dementia awareness sessions for our relatives, friends and staff.  We displayed lots of helpful information and came together to enjoy a posh, purple afternoon tea.

    Marie Galligan, Practice Development Co-Ordinator said ‘Thank you to Angi Inch, Dementia Advisor, for coming along today.  We at Lillyburn understand that it’s everyone job to raise awareness about dementia. If people have an understanding of the illness, they can make informed choices about the care they receive and families feel more empowered as well.’

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
