    Making The Most Of The Lovely Weather

    Lillyburn made the most of the beautiful weather today as they took the scenic route to Cloybank at Banknoch for lunch.

    Cloybank is well known for its golf range and equestrian centre but it’s ‘jewel in the crown’ is its café. Their ever-changing menu of homemade food meant there was a dish to suit everyone’s tastes.

    The group received a warm welcome and were pleasantly surprised to be entertained by the owner who played some of our resident’s favourite songs on the keyboard. Residents of Lillyburn are well known for their singing and did not miss the opportunity to sing along. Resident Dougie also shared a dance with Marie, our Practice Development Co-ordinator.

    Kitty commented on the lovely experience she had getting out and about with her fellow residents and friends at Lillyburn.

    John Hood said “Cloybank is an excellent local venue, we will be back again soon!”

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
