    Keen Dancers Take Part In Silent Disco

    Posted by Stanely Park Care Home


    Residents at Stanely Park are always looking for an opportunity to dance and our silent disco had everyone tapping their feet and singing along.

    A silent disco is an event where people dance to music listened to on headphones. This allows our residents to feel and enjoy music and have a dance whilst the care home still remains quiet and peaceful.

    Silent discos have proven to be hit throughout Pacific Care. Our Day Care service was recently included in a feature on STV covering the benefits of silent discos for the elderly.

    There was plenty of singing, so anybody not participating could hear a cacophony of different voices, not all in tune!

    Resident Jean McKellar did not enjoy it the first time round. However on her second attempt, she thoroughly loved the experience and said that it was the best afternoon she had spent for a wee while.

    Home manager Sue Kedley said ‘it was such a good afternoon and the responses from all our residents, even those with communication difficulties, had made us look at purchasing the equipment from our fundraising efforts throughout the year.’

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
