Balshagray House on Facebook

Balshagray House came up with the idea of a new Facebook page to keep family and friends regularly updated on what everyone has been up to in lockdown. This has also given service users the opportunity to communicate with the outside world and document their time, with daily updates.

Throughout this difficult time, individuals at Balshagray have continued to thrive, whilst staying safe. Daily routine had been so important for individuals who live there, and staff have worked hard to maintain a regular routine for everyone. The daily quiz between team one and team two has become an important and popular, not to mention competitive, aspect of daily life! Everyone works hard to make a weekly tribute to NHS staff, essential workers and carers.The weekly videos of everyone standing on the front steps, clapping, cheering and singing have become a highlight for the house and friends and family who follow the page.

Our team at Balshagray has gone above and beyond throughout this time and as with all of our support staff, we cannot thank them enough for their hard work and dedication. Everyone who lives at Balshgray has risen to the challenges of lockdown with energy and enthusiasm. If you are on Facebook, you can request to join the Balshagray House Facebook page here:
