    Residents at Lillyburn Care Home had a number of egg-citing experiences this Easter.

    Family and friends were delighted to receive their very own Easter bonnets and cards which were lovingly made at our Easter arts & crafts session.

    The sun was out this Easter weekend and Lillyburn made the most of it. It was great to see residents basking in the sun as they sipped on cocktails, mocktails and enjoyed some canapes.


    Our Easter Sunday Church service took place in the afternoon, followed by indulging on some egg-cellent homemade Easter eggs specially prepared by our Head Chef John and his team.

    Come Easter Monday, residents were back in the garden where they enjoyed afternoon tea and a raffle. The event was filled with laughter, conversation and plenty of chocolate.

    Phyllis, commented on how nice it was to be served a cocktail in the sunshine and said “Such a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.”

    Marie Galligan, Practice Development Manager said “Easter time is a special time of year for so many of our residents. It is important that we are aware that ‘one size does not fit all’ and so we offer a variety of activities for our residents to take part in which meet physical, fun and spiritual needs.”

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
