Mount Carmel Supported Care Home this week has launched a new website to enable people to keep in touch with how are residents and staff are doing, it is available at https://www.mountcarmelcallan.ie
Due to COVID-19, this year has seen people and organisations making changes in all areas of life and business. Such flexibility and adaptability has resulted in many well-known processes remaining in place that otherwise would not be possible due to social distancing. One such change is the Mount Carmel monthly draw, which is now online for the first time ever. A major advantage of this is that people can now access the draw from anywhere in the world.
The cost of the draw is €25 for the year and there are 12 draws with a prize fund each month of €200, €100, and 10 prizes of €30. This draw enables Mount Carmel to assist in the running of the home and has been ongoing for more than 30 years with fantastic support from the surrounding community.
For those supporters of Mount Carmel who prefer the traditional way of supporting the draw by paying for the draw in person, you will be delighted to know that they can still join in by visiting Callan Post Office, Mullinahone Post Office, Windgap Tea Rooms.
The money raised from the draw attempts to make up the difference between what we receive from State agencies and what it costs to give the residents the excellent service they have always been given.
As well as Mount Carmel’s website supporters can also keep in touch with what residents and staff are doing via the Friends of Mount Carmel Care Home Callan Facebook group.
