We are delighted that, through The Rotary Foundation, the Rotary Club of Motherwell and Wishaw are able to present two Kindle Fire Tablets each to Avondale Nursing Home, Motherwell and Hatton Lea Nursing Home in Bellshill for the use and benefit of dementia sufferers. The tablets have come with specific apps recommended by Dementia specialists. Further tablets will be given to Dementia Resource Centre, Motherwell and the Stonehouse Jubilee Club in the near future.
The tablets were delivered by our Community and Vocational Convener, Jean Murray, and our Rotary Foundation Convenor, Willie Talbot when they visited the Homes, adhering to all the necessary Covid precautions.
