Care home is given a Christmas makeover
A Rutherglen care home was given a Christmas makeover thanks to some kind-hearted family members and a local community group.
Residents at Duncraggan were donated decorations and an eight foot Christmas tree.
Family members and the Rutherglen Tesco Extra Champions Community Group dedicated their time to bring the care home some Christmas cheer.
Community champions, Evie Morgan and Scott Dewar, donated decorations as well as decorating the home and Charles Carmichael donated the Christmas tree that sits in the conservatory.
Laura Gordon, who has two parents who live at the care home, helped put up the decorations with her sister and niece. She said: “It was so nice to be part of putting up the Christmas decorations at Duncraggan and it was lovely to see the residents help put up the bobbles and Christmas tree. It means so much to me being involved with my mum and dad.
“It’s the staff and the manager that are a credit to Duncraggan and that’s what makes it such a happy place.”
Ma n a g e r of the Duncraggan Care Home, Janine Logue, said the event, which took place on December 5, was a huge success.
She said: “We invited the families to come along and decorate their mum and dad’s home. I can’t thank everyone enough for all who participated.
“It ’ s important to continue our community links and for everyone to come to Duncraggan to make it feel like a family home rather than a care home. The residents were delighted and it was made to feel like it was their home.”
