Care home is given a Christ­mas makeover

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Mur­ray Spooner

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.”
