ABBEY­FIELD Ballachulish nurs­ing home has again achieved top marks in a re­cent Care In­spec­torate visit.

The high­est grad­ing means the home is con­sid­ered to pro­vide ‘ex­cel­lent’ care ser­vices in the fol­low­ing ar­eas: care and sup­port, en­vi­ron­ment, staffing and man­age­ment and lead­er­ship.

It has also re­cently at­tained Abbey­field UK’s Core Stan­dards Cer­tifi­cate which recog­nises those within the so­ci­ety who achieve and main­tain ex­cep­tional lev­els of qual­ity and care.

Abbey­field is look­ing for vol­un­teers to take part in the High­land Cross 50-mile duathlon on Satur­day June 17 to raise money for a new mini bus to en­able the home to con­tinue run­ning day­care and lunch club ac­tiv­i­ties and for these to grow.

The duathlon will be a 20-mile walk/jog/run from Mor­vich over the Five Sis­ters of Kin­tail to Glen Af­fric, where the par­tic­i­pants will col­lect their bi­cy­cles and ride 30 miles to Beauly.

Abbey­field is one of four char­i­ties to ben­e­fit from the duathlon. More than £ 300 was raised by the daugh­ter of one of the res­i­dents and her son by tak­ing part in Helsby half marathon. This will go to­wards the res­i­dents fund for 2017.
