    We attended “Mind that Song” at the Kirkintilloch Hillhead Church, organised by Alzheimer Scotland.

     

    Musical Memory Groups such as this use singing to bring people together in a friendly, stimulating and social environment. The groups are open to everyone in the community in a dementia friendly setting.


    Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by staff and volunteers from both Alzheimer Scotland and the Kirkintilloch Hillhead church.


    We indulged in a delicious high tea lunch followed by live musical entertainment. Many of our staff and service users took to the dancefloor.


    It was a great day, very well organised, and enjoyed greatly by everyone in attendance. The staff of Alzheimer Scotland and the volunteers from the Hillhead church were very welcoming and helpful throughout the day.

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
