A warm welcome to all at any of our services.
COMMUNITY SAFETY PILOT
I am absolutely delighted at the news that a Ballater based Community Safety and Support post is being piloted for twelve months to cover the Upper Deeside area.
This post has been developed because of discussions Braemar GP, Dr Donald Cruickshank and I had with David Rout, the Senior Fire Officer here in the North-east, about our concerns surrounding the lack of ambulance based in Braemar and our increasingly aging population
The post, which is funded by the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service with a contribution from Aberdeenshire Council, will cover a multitude of responsibilities including preventing falls in the home, supporting and uplifting someone who has fallen but is uninjured, home safety, fuel poverty and taking part in road safety issues. The benefits of the project will be evaluated over the year and if proves successful, may continue.
Its great news this post has now come to fruition; if someone falls in their home and there is no injury, it is madness to call upon limited ambulance cover. If someone does fall and an ambulance is not available, that person could very quickly get cold and then health issues do arise; if someone can jump in a car and be at the house in twenty minutes to help that provides reassurance to everyone.
I would like to say a huge Thank You to Officer David Rout for listening and taking the lead in helping our communities and I will watch how the post develops with interest.

I KNOW THAT WE HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE BUT PLEASE CAN YOU SHARE THIS IF...... you think that you might know someone who is daft enough to ever want to work in a hotel!! In all seriousness - we have a great thing going on at The Deeside Inn - it really is a great place to be if you want to make a difference and be excited by what you spend (most of the day) doing. We want upbeat, energetic and caring people to beat a path to our door - it will be worth it. Let us show you what a great industry this is to be a part of (Amy said that). We are in need of housekeepers, waiting staff, a receptionist and a maintenance person. We look forward to having an informal chat with anyone who is interested. We will consider part time or full time - experience or no experience. There's a fantastic team of hard working and creative people who need help! Please contact Joanna, Mhairi or Amy on either 01339 755413 or email@example.com
