The Dalhousie Centre will hold its annual general meeting in the centre on Wednesday, August 22 at 4.30pm.
The chairman’s report will include an expression of concern at the dwindling number of people being referred to the centre.
“The number of older people is increasing,” explains a spokesperson.
“We know that most are enjoying their golf and bowling, their dancing and other social activities.
“However, we believe that some are less able to get about, are perhaps lonely and a bit depressed and would benefit from the company and activities that the Dalhousie Centre provides.
“Loneliness can be detrimental to health. “The meals provided would, we are sure, be welcome too.
“We believe too that some carers would appreciate a bit of time to themselves knowing that their loved one is being looked after, one or two days a week, by the trained staff at the centre.”
