Ally McCoist pops into Cardonald Care Home
Many of our homes welcome famous faces through its doors, but one home in particular can boast a whole football team from time to time.
Mary, a resident at Cardonald Care Home in Glasgow worked tirelessly at Glasgow Rangers Football Club for 48 years previously to living in the home. Now from time to time, the football team drop by for a chat and a drink, but there’s one special man in particular who regularly comes to visit Mary.
Michelle Murray, Home Manager, said: “Ally is a very good friend of Mary’s and regularly comes and takes her out for afternoon tea before coming back and sitting in the home for a chat. He’s like an extended member of the family, and it’s nice for everyone in the home because for such a famous man, he’s certainly very humble. I know Mary enjoys spending time with him and the rest of the football team. It’s nice to see that they continue to recognise her for her hard work and dedication, even after she has retired.”

Residents and the care team have been busy bees at Doulton Court Care Home in Sutton-on-Sea.
The home has been undergoing some TLC recently as its been having it’s wooden windows and doors replaced.
Joyce Turner, Home Manager, said: “The workmen are doing a fantastic job, liaising with our carers to minimise the disruption to our residents. Within one week almost all of the windows are replaced and look fantastic. Our very own ‘Domestic Dave’ has been staying late each day to clean up and ensure the disturbance to the residents is minimal. We’d be totally lost without him. I want to thank the whole team for their continued help and support whilst the renovations have been going on. Go team Doulton Court!”
Whilst the windows were being replaced, the residents were taking part in their very own exercise class.
“The class is always a firm favourite with the residents,” explained Joyce. “It helps to keep them agile and is great fun. It’s definitely one activity on the calendar that the residents look forward too constantly.”

Say hello to the newest member of the Hesslewood House Care Home team in Hessle, Luna the cat.
Kate Wilson, Home Manager, said: “Luna is the newest member of our team, and has made herself right at home since joining us.
