Car­ers en­joy Kin­tyre break

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A GROUP of car­ers from the Dochas Cen­tre in Lochgilp­head en­joyed a long week­end break at Sad­dell House in Kin­tyre.

The car­ers were treated to meals in the large din­ing room, with staff en­joy­ing hav­ing their meals cooked for them and shar­ing it with other car­ers.

One Dochas em­ployee said: ‘It was so good to have your meals cooked for you. The com­pany was bril­liant, ev­ery­one was in­cluded and I got to make new friends.’

The house had no wi-fi or tele­vi­sion, with the staff feel­ing they could re­ally un­wind. They took in some of the most spec­tac­u­lar views Kin­tyre has to of­fer, look­ing across Kil­branan Sound to Ar­ran, also get­ting a great view of the beach where Paul Mc­Cart­ney recorded ‘Mull of Kin­tyre’.

Fol­low­ing af­ter­noon tea on Satur­day, three ther­a­pists ar­rived to pam­per the car­ers. One carer com­mented: ‘I re­alise how im­por­tant it is to take care of my­self I am go­ing home a dif­fer­ent per­son. I feel so re­freshed.’

The Dochas Cen­tre would like to say a huge thank you to the Land­mark Trust for giv­ing the car­ers this ex­pe­ri­ence for the third year in a row, al­low­ing them to re­lax, make new friends and recharge their bat­ter­ies. Thanks go to all the helpers and staff that made the trip so mem­o­rable.
