    STV Films Silent Disco

    Posted by Birdston Day Care Centre

    We had the pleasure of welcoming the STV News team along to Birdston Day Care, who filmed our ‘Silent Disco’ in partnership with Gillian at “Ya Dancer” Silent Discos. The event was part of a news feature shown on STV News.

    A ‘Silent Disco’ is an event where participants dance to music listened to on wireless headphones instead of a speaker. Those without the headphones hear no music, which can give the effect of a room full of people dancing to no sound!!

    The disco was a genuine delight to not just our service users but also for staff who enjoyed a wee dance with those taking part.

    You can view the news feature of the silent disco here: https://news.stv.tv/west-central/silent-disco-sparks-memories-for-pensioners-with-dementia

    We wish to thank Gillian and the STV News team for coming along and meeting our Service Users and staff at Birdston Day Care.

Pacific Care

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
