Anderson’s held a Sport’s Week from 29 July to 2 August 2013.  Traditional races such as the egg and spoon and the sack race were very hotly contested as staff took part in fancy dress.  Resident’s enjoyed competing with indoor activities including Carpet Bowls, Hoopla, and Croquet to name but a few and also enjoyed an outside  ‘Toss the Wellie’ competition.   On 2 August we had our awards presentation with staff and residents being presented with awards and certificates.  Overall champions were the Morrice Unit who were presented with the Seaforth Shield...

Retiral of Rev. Colin Morison

Posted by on Jun 21, 2013 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Retiral of Rev. Colin Morison

It  has been a privilege to have had Colin on the Board of Governors.  By his profession as a Minister of The Free Church of Scotland he cares deeply about people and this has been apparent in his role as Governor, both for staff and residents, and those in the wider community.  He thinks logically and has brought a great deal of common sense, dry humour and thoughtfulness when serving as a Governor and as a member of the Finance Committee over the past 10 years during which time many changes have taken place.  When a Governor retires it is customary for the Board to have tea and cake...

The Wonderful World of IT

Posted by on May 20, 2013 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on The Wonderful World of IT

We could see how the introduction of an IT Suite  at Anderson’s could benefit staff with their learning but some folk may have been a ‘wee’ bit sceptical as to how the residents could benefit from something that was, after all, quite alien to them. Well, have we got news for you …… We have several residents who not only regularly “surf the net” but also keep in touch with friends and family by email.

I had the pleasure of attending the above event and took my mother along as a special treat. We were welcomed with open arms and before long were spoilt with hot tea and warm toast which was soon to be followed with a delightful evening meal. The atmosphere was lovely with tranquil music playing in the background.  Joan Cowe, Anita O’Neil and all the behind the scenes staff did a fabulous job, keeping us topped up with fresh tea and light conversation. My mother had a wonderful evening and her leaving remark was “when can I move in, I have had a lovely evening”.  She took a lovely...
