Organisations from across the town including, shops, sports centres, libraries and other local businesses and services have all shown their support to the local initiative to date.
Rothes Medical Practice are proud to announce that we are now part of the “dementia friendly community” this was given to us for changes we implemented throughout our busy reception area, notice boards and and waiting area. We were given a very interesting talk giving an insight into living with dementia and the challenges that the patients face on a daily basis, we all agree that we have learned from this and feel that this knowledge will be beneficial to us in our workplace. We were inspired to change some of our posters and signage throughout the practice: they are now brighter clearer and easier to understand. If you have any further suggestions or ideas that may be useful please don’t hesitate to contact reception.
We are also delighted to announce that we were able to donate a total of £155 to the cause by donating the money we raise from selling second hand books. Thank you so much to everyone who donates books and buys them, you can be assured that this money always goes to a really good cause.
