It is said that we as people don’t always remember the days, but that we remember the moments. It is those moments that make life so special.
Founded in 1916, Erskine provided care for sailors and soldiers after their return from World War One. Exactly a century later care and support remains continuous for around 1,000 ex-service men, women and their families each year. Erskine still provides nursing, specialist dementia care, medical care and residential respite. Erskine’s aim is to enhance quality of life through their outstanding services that include physiotherapy, speech and language therapy and numerous outings and activities. As long as there is need, Erskine will always care.
This is such a kind hearted and inspirational cause that means a lot to us, therefore we teamed up with Erskine and recently launched an online book designed primarily to pay tribute and remember all of the those who have fought for our country. This online book reaches out to all involved, providing comfort through personal memories of lost ones. This online book is a celebration of life.
Erskine remembers ‘A Century of Care’ through The Centenary Garden that has been recently created on the Erskine Estate in Bishopton, a truly tranquil place, offering stunning surroundings for residents, their families, visitors, staff and the rest of the community.
This beautiful Garden features a paved memorial walkway that winds through breath-taking woodland of trees and an abundance of wildflowers. This peacefully set out garden allows veterans to enjoy time with family and friends while encouraging physical activity.
This is a place where people can remember their loved one through memorial plaques, bought through our E-Commerce site, that can be made for anyone, whether they have served or not. This is a lovely way to honour them. As well as a memorial plaque the name of the person being remembered and the brief heart-felt message written on the plaque will be added to the Erskine online Book of Remembrance for all to see and pay their respects.
