Wiltshire Farm Foods Presentations and Tasting Sessions in the Perth Office

By | News, Perthshire | No Comments
We thoroughly enjoyed having Terri from Wiltshire Farm Foods visit us in the Perth Office to do presentations and tasting sessions for our Carers. Through Terri’s very informative presentations and excellent literature, we learnt that not only do Wiltshire Farm Foods help their customers to maintain their independence but that their special diet ranges and softer food range support a wide range of people.  
Everyone had a great time sampling the variety of foods that they offer.

The disco was held in the Sanctuary night club and was hosted by Weekday Wow factor, which you may have recently seen on STV news.

Alexis bids farewell!

By | Dunbartonshire, News | No Comments

The Dunbartonshire team was saddened that one of their long standing carers, Alexis Higgins retired this past week. Alexis has worked for Bright Care since 2014 and has been a very valued member of the team. In her time with Bright Care, Alexis has had a greatly positive impact on both her clients and other care workers and has been awarded Carer of the Month more than once. The office team took Alexis out for lunch and presented her with a lovely bunch of flowers as a thank you. We wish Alexis all the best with her retirement and we hope to keep in touch and hear all about her adventures.

Perth Office Italian Day (Festa della Repubblica), Canada’s 150th birthday and France’s Bastille Day

By | News, Perthshire | No Comments
As we have Carer Companions from all over the world we have been celebrating this by holding country-themed Open Days in the Perth Office.
On 2 June we celebrated Italy’s National Day. Elisa Esposito, our Italian recruitment co-ordinator,  was on hand to add some authenticity to the day with her delicious homemade lasagna. We had an Italian themed quiz for clients and lots of pizza and tiramisu as well.  The city of Perth has strong links with Italy and The Perth Italian Club was established in 1972.

There was much fun to be had on the Open Day to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and France’s National Day.  Our Companion Carer, Kim MacKinnon is Canadian and Veronique Bezy is French. We served up Pancakes with maple syrup as well as cheese, grapes and croissants.  Clients and staff attended and we had general knowledge quizzes on both countries  The lucky client winners won a bottle of bubbly and some lovely french coffee.

Our Care Supervisor, Tracey Comrie, did some cake decorating for the occasion and the cake was then donated to to the residents of Pitlair House in the Bow of Fife where we support one of our clients.
