Our Respite and Day Care Centre was built in 1835 and is situated within the grounds of the Residential Home. The Centre is well furnished and decorated and provides a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Individuals supported in the Centre have access to all the activities and therapies within our Residential Home including; aromatherapy, health and wellbeing sessions, visiting entertainers and social outings. They also enjoy spending time outdoors in our extensive grounds with a cultivated walled garden and seating areas.

“The Centre is a stepping stone for the individuals we support, either to a permanent place in the Residential Home, or transitioning back into their own community. Our staff team provide the unique care they need in order to provide the best outcome for the individual.” Catherine, Respite & Day Care Centre Manager

The Centre also offers help, support, care and understanding to families who are under stress and emotional pressure from caring for the individuals with mental health and alcoholism. We have started an extensive upgrade to the building to better meet the needs of the residents and improve their environment. The upgrade will include structural alterations, roof structure repairs, replacement of windows, installation of new 6 ensuite bathrooms, new internal walls and partitions, a new heating system, an operational sluice, new wall and floor finishings, decoration, and electrical installations.

We need to raise £244,030 for the upgrade. We have raised £127,298 to date and we have already installed a new kitchen area where individuals can socialise and learn cooking skills, upgraded the living area, installed a downstairs shower room,  and a downstairs bedroom with disabled access. The individuals we support are delighted with their new living room and say it is: "cosy, welcoming and much nicer than before." Photographs of the new kitchen and living room are pictured below.

The upgrade will be carried out in phases as we receive the funds and we aim to have the building work completed in the next two years. We would like to thank Trusts and local community groups, including the Stirling and Bridge of Allan Round Table, for their generous donations.
