East Dunbartonshire MP Jo Swinson recently visited Milan in Kirkintilloch – a day care service for local adults from ethnic minority communities.
Milan offers care for adults over the age of 60 including health services such as an opticians, chiropody and aromatherapy. The centre is open five days a week, with staff providing food and transport to and from the centre.
Commenting after her visit, Jo said:
“I really enjoyed meeting the residents at Milan, who all told me how well looked after they are by the excellent staff. They receive a wide range of support and the opportunity to get out, meet others and relax at the centre is invaluable for many of these adults. It is vital that there are good local social care services and Milan in Kirkintilloch thrives due to the selflessness and hard work of all the staff there.”
