Lochaber Rotary Club is proud to be associated with Abbeyfield Care Home – recently awarded ‘Care Home Service of the Year’ at Scottish Care’s National Care Home Awards 2017. This award confirms that our local Abbeyfield House delivers the highest quality care to all who need it.
Over the last decade the Rotary Club has earnestly supported Abbeyfield by a range of measures including funding a specialized nursing bed, organizing many fundraising events such as Burns Suppers, a ‘Young Chef of the Year’ (Erin Mills) charity dinner, funding song sheets for their fortnightly singalong led by past president David Anderson , and entertaining residents with our Christmas carol choir’s annual visit.
Past president David Thomson is a trustee of Abbeyfield and regularly updates the Club on progress at the care home. Club President Donald McCorkindale congratulated Abbeyfield on achieving this level of recognition. He added “It is heartening to see this local care home receive external confirmation of its high standards – hot on the heels of the recent Care Inspectorate’s assessment of Abbeyfield as ‘excellent’. Our Club is honoured to work closely with Abbeyfield”
