Laurandy Day Centre, Wick and NHS Bayview, Thurso Take Over Alzheimers In Caithness

14th April 2017

From 1st May 2017 Alzheimers Scotland will no longer offer their services in Caithness for people suffering from dementia.

Couthie Corner, Thurso based at Bayview will no longer be run by Alzheimer Scotland but will instead be run by the NHS and the Longberry day service in Wick will be taken over by Laurandy.

Chairman of Laurandy Day Centre, Bill Fernie said, "It is unfortunate that Alzheimers Scotland cannot offer a service any longer in Caithness at centres in Thurso and Wick. NHS Highland had discussions with Laurandy's manager and we agreed to step in to take over day services for the existing people using the Wick Alzheimer service at Longberry. Our staff have lot of experience dealing with the problems associated with dementia and we feel confident that everyone will be well catered for."

In Thurso NHS will deal with people at Couthie Corner at the same base in Bayview Care Home where Alzheimers operated from..
