    Tartan Everywhere

    Posted by Birdston Day Care Centre

    We celebrated our annual Burns Supper at Birdston Day Care. In the morning, we had Burns Day themed games and a Burns Quiz before our feast.


    The main floor and the dining area had been beautifully decorated by Janet and Frances, with tartan table covers, Scottish flags and Burns menus. Many of our service users and staff had dressed for the occasion wearing something with tartan in it. 

     

    The award for the most tartan goes to our piper, who piped the haggis in from the kitchen dressed in full Highland Clan attire.

     

    We were joined by our friend Mary Young who addressed the Haggis. Mary worked at Day Care 12 years ago but has faithfully returned every year to address the Haggis. We are extremely grateful to Mary who was presented Mary with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for her time with us.

     

    To end the supper, we tucked in to some traditional Scottish shortbread and whisky truffles.


    A day that Rabbie himself would have been proud of.

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
