Trauma teddies were knitted by residents and staff from Bridge View and are used by Children 1st and Police Scotland to give to children who have suffered trauma in their lives.

Wendy Smith, activities co-ordinator at our care home was delighted with the hard work and dedication of residents and staff;

“We are so pleased to be able to contribute to the community and our hearts go out to the children who suffer trauma in our society.”

Plans are already afoot to knit for our next project!

There was plenty to celebrate as our care home staff received recognition for the completion of training for their Scottish Vocational Qualifications. At the same time our housekeeper, Ella Lothian was presented with a gift voucher, chocolates and flowers in recognition of an amazing 26 years service at Bridge View House. She deserves a medal for her great dedication.

The staff also received flowers and chocolates as they were presented with their certificates by Caroleanne O’Neill from Tell, who supported them through their training.

Nursing home manager at Bridge View House, Heather Allison said:

We are delighted for our hard working staff, who are so dedicated to the residents of our care home, and who study hard to ensure they are always giving the best care possible. I am so proud of them all. I must give special mention to Ella Lothian who has given twenty-six years to ensuring the comfort and care of residents. I am so proud of them all.

A very happy birthday from us all

Nora Robson’s 100th Birthday celebrations were crowned with a very special message indeed. Dundee Lord Provost Ian Borthwick presented her birthday card from The Queen. Maybe Nora will send HM the Queen a card on her big day!
