    Birdston Day Care organised a ‘Silent Disco’, an event where people dance to music listened to on wireless headphones.

    ‘Silent Discos’ are popular at music festivals as they allow dancing to continue past noise curfews, it’s a great way for participants to enjoy music whilst those without headphones hear no music, giving the effect of a room full of people dancing to nothing.

    Everyone in the room thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. There was both laughs and tears at the same time, with many stirring memories from years gone by.

    Our Service Users also enjoyed a light refreshment from the bar during the show, and during the half time interval they enjoyed a cup of tea or coffee with biscuits and cake.

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
