Dementia centre opens in Glasgow


Posted on December 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A state-of-the-art dementia centre in Glasgow has been opened with help in the form of a grant from the Westminster Health Care Foundation. The £10,000 cash boost was used to build a kitchen purpose-built for dementia users at the Alzheimer Scotland Centre. Westminster Health Care Foundation is the charity-giving arm of care home provider Westminster Health Care, recently acquired by Barchester Healthcare. Among those who spoke at the event were Alzheimer Scotland¹s Chief Executive Jim Jackson and Deputy Minister for Health and Community Care Rhona Brankin, who officially opened the centre.
