Residents in South Perthshire are being invited to attend an open day at Crieff Community Hospital.
The drop-in event is being held on Saturday, 30 June, and will offer local people the opportunity to meet the South Perthshire health and social care partnership team, as well as local community groups who provide support to people in the area.
Members of the community can also share their ideas, views and opinions on how available space in Crieff Community Hospital could be used in the future to support the local community.
This available space includes ward 1, an area which was previously used for dementia assessment until a new model of care for older people’s mental health services in South Perthshire was implemented last year. This model shifted the delivery of care for older people with dementia or a mental health illness closer to their own homes.
Health and social care professionals are working in partnership with patients and their families to deliver a more localised service for those living with dementia.
The hospital open day is being held between 10am and 2pm and refreshments will be available.
A range of activities provided by local groups and services will also be on offer during the event, including learning about upcycling, light exercise routines, local transport options and lots more.
South Perthshire & Kinross locality manager Lindsey Bailie said, “This will be a good opportunity to meet members of the local community and discuss health and social care in the area. The open day will provide information on what services are provided from Crieff Community Hospital, as well as information on what support is available in the community. We hope people from South Perthshire come along and share their views.”
