A new enablement lounge has been built at the Dalhousie Daycare Centre, giving users more opportunities to use the facilities
A new cooker was donated so anything they bake can be cooked in the room.
The room is also used for arts and craft activities.
“The centre itself has a fridge, cooker, kettle, microwave, so the members can come through and use the facilities themselves as well, to make themselves a cup of tea”, explained staff member Gail Swankie.
The centre, which provides care for elderly people from 9 am until 5 pm, Monday to Friday, has seen vast extensions to their facilities since opening.
Surrounding flats, a cottage and a former snooker hall have all been purchased and renovated.
The money received for all the work done, including the newly-opened enablement lounge, has come from various trusts, and in total has cost £300,000.
