Gardening in Drumdarroch

One resident in Drumdarroch now regularly tends to our garden happily and independently, often having to be asked to come inside at mealtimes.

Drumdarroch Open Day

Drumdarroch Care Home held an Open Day on the 4th August 2018 to celebrate our 20th anniversary.

We had a Bouncy Castle, Face Painting, Hook-a-Duck and Bruces “Play Your Cards Right” outside for the youngsters. We had several local stall holders including a candle stall, a Scrabble Art stall, book and bottle stalls. We were also very busy serving Cream Teas in the Dining Room.

Lots of staff and relatives got involved by volunteering to help out.

The weather was very kind to us and we had a big turnout of visitors from all around the local area.

Nursery Class Visit

Here at Drumdarroch we have fortnightly visits from our local Nursery class. The children who come are aged 3 and 4 and are extremely well behaved and polite!

Our residents look forward to these visits and have great fun with the children. We have been enjoying this activity for a year now so bonds have formed between pupils and residents.

We all meet in the dining room and join in various activities. We paint, make jigsaws, build with bricks, dress up, play with playdough and often break into song! Recent studies have shown that Viagra may contribute to the reduction of cancer tumors. The researchers found that Viagra helps to stop the growth of tumor and protect the heart from damage when combined with certain anti-cancer drugs). The drug called doxorubicin (chemotherapy) in complex with Viagra may become more effective in the treatment of prostate cancer. Scientists claim that Viagra enhances the effect of doxorubicin and reduces the degree of side effects.

We always have great fun and all learn from each other. We try as much as possible to involve the children in other aspects of life at Drumdarroch e.g. Reading sessions and Carol singing at Christmas time.
