Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Meet our Activities Coordinator, Kirsty McDougall

Kirsty has worked at Mo Dhachaidh for many years and can always be heard laughing and creating fun activities for residents. She is very creative and works hard to ensure the residents play an active part in the community, planning events in and out of the home.

Activities at our home

Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!

Arts & Crafts with Steve

We were delighted to welcome back Steve from An Tallas Solias. He is working alongside residents, creating two tiled walls which will reflect local industries (fishing and farming). Steve visits the home every month and, as the weather gets better, residents will attend his workshop in the village.

The X Tractor

On Saturday 28th April, Mo Dhachaidh held its own mini Tractor Show after our Activities Cooordinator, Kirsty Urquhart, asked some local men if they could show residents their vintage tractors. On a beautiful sunny day, staff got a chance to sit on and drive some of the tractors whilst residents chatted with the crofters. Mo Dhachaidh invited local people to attend and we enjoyed coffee and home baking in the garden.

Birthday Celebrations

Residents are encouraged to attend their church of preference here at Mo Dhachaidh and can even celebrate their birthdays there. It is our aim to ensure that residents feel fully involved in their own community and all churches are very supportive with this.

An Tallas Solias

A highlight of the month was when we were visited by Steve from An Tallas Solias. Residents are working towards making tiles for the corridor walls; the themes are farming and fishing, which represent the main industries of the village and professions of several residents.

Highland Games

Residents were made to feel very welcome at Ullapool's first ever Highland Games! Although it was a bit cold, residents enjoyed chatting with their local friends and watching the highland dancers and pipeband. It was a fabulous day and residents felt very included in their community.

Arts & Crafts

Residents enjoy arts & crafts sessions with Anne-Marie, who visits every month. There is always lots of chatting and laughing at her sessions and a great sense of achievement by the end, when some amazing pieces of art have been produced and displayed on the walls.
