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.
