Care centre praise

A DEMENTIA support service based in East Renfrewshire has been nominated for an award for excellence in the delivery of care to adults and older people.

The Facing Dementia Together initiative – based at the Eastwood centre – supports people diagnosed with early-stage dementia.

The project has been named as a finalist for 2012 Care Accolades, held in Perth on June 22.

West of Scotland MSP Stewart Maxwell recognised the success in a parliamentary motion, and commented: “I’m delighted the good work of Facing Dementia Together has been recognised through this year’s Care Accolades”.
