Glencairn Coronavirus Statement

In line with current Government guidance we are currently closed to visitors except essential medical professionals.

We will continue to review this policy, and will open for visitors when we feel it is safe to do so.

We all know this is a difficult and worrying time especially for our residents who will be missing seeing their families and friends, but all of our staff here at Glencairn are making sure they are all safe and well.

We are able to make and receive video calls so relatives can see and talk to our residents. We can do this via Face Time or Skype. Just call us to make a convenient time and we’ll make it happen our end. Of course phone calls are welcome at any time.

In the meantime, follow this link to see some of our latest pictures showing what we’ve all been getting up to, most recently over the Easter Holiday.

Every Thursday our amazing staff join in with the national clap for our key workers.
Last Thursday Doris and Eileen came out and joined in to show their appreciation.
