Halloween at St Columbas

Halloween has been in full swing in St Columba’s recently. Residents and staff enjoyed decorating the home with scary decorations as you can see. Bob the music man entertained residents, staff and visitors at our Halloween party and everyone had fun singing, dancing and duckin’ for apples.


St Columbas – Retirement

Priority Staff member Susan Scott has retired after 19 years in St Columba’s Care Home.   Susan started work in the home as a care assistant, then progressed to Senior Care assistant and remained a valuable member of the care team for many years.   Latterly, Susan decided to work in the laundry until her retirement.   A surprise retirement party was organised for Susan by staff who presented her with flowers, wine and vouchers.   All staff enjoyed saying farewell to Susan over a buffet and drinks in the home.   Susan will be greatly missed but we all wish her all the best for the future!

Christmas Fun at St Columbas


Staff, relatives and residents had a ball at their xmas parties in the home. Some opted for pajama theme for their parties which they enjoyed.    All entertained by Bob the music man who got everyone up dancing as ever!

A guid yarn

St Columba’s was chosen to be part of the Dundee Rep programme for residents in care home called “A guid yarn”. This involved a group of older adults from Dundee Rep called “The beautiful people” coming in each week to spend time with the residents. During these visits they worked together reminiscing and participating in small drama sessions, which the residents really enjoyed. The residents felt they had made new friends and at the end of the programme were invited to a complimentary show at the Rep, an Agatha Christie production which they enjoyed. Does anyone know about the maintenance Cialis dose for daily use? I have started with 2.5 mg and still hesitating whether I should increase it or not.

Residents, staff and families all enjoyed a Hawaiian themed party in the garden at St Columba’s to enjoy the great summer weather. Entertainment was provided by Bob the Music man who got everyone up singing and dancing. Everyone took part and dressed up in grass skirts and garlands and enjoyed a couple of cocktails along the way. A fun day was had by all.
