A Ruther­glen care home is host­ing a de­men­tia sup­port café for De­men­tia Aware­ness Week and is invit­ing mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity to join them.

Bupa’s Rodger­park Care Home, on Rodger Drive, is wel­com­ing lo­cals on Tues­day, May 16 from 2-4pm for cof­fee, cake and con­ver­sa­tions.

The af­ter­noon of­fers a com­fort­able space for those who want to meet, chat and share with oth­ers whose lives have been af­fected by de­men­tia over cof­fee and a cake.

De­men­tia care spe­cial­ists and Bupa’s Ad­mi­ral nurses will also be on hand to of­fer ad­vice and an­swer any ques­tions.

San­dra Mackay, res­i­dent ex­pe­ri­ence man­ager at Bupa’s Rodger­park Care Home, said:“Giv­ing our res­i­dents and vis­i­tors this time in which they can share their ex­pe­ri­ences and sto­ries with each other is in­valu­able and some­thing which we’ve found to be hugely ben­e­fi­cial for ev­ery­one in­volved.”

Those in­ter­ested can call 0141 530 3964 for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, or turn up on the day.

De­men­tia Aware­ness Week runs from May 15-21.
