The Minister for Mental Health, Maureen Watt MSP, visited Simeon Care for the Elderly on Monday to celebrate Volunteers’ Week and the significant contribution volunteers make to the care and support of the residents at Simeon Care for the Elderly.
The visit provided the Minister with an opportunity to meet the residents and their families, the staff and volunteers, and to hear first-hand about the valued contribution made by volunteers to the care and support of the residents.
Keith Nunn, Simeon’s General Manager said
We were delighted to welcome Maureen Watt MSP to Simeon as part of our Volunteer tea party. The Minister was on hand to thank our volunteers and acknowledge the important role they play in our society in all it’s forms. The afternoon was a great success and went a small way to acknowledge the difference our volunteers make to our home.
Simeon wouldn’t be the same without volunteers, and we are incredibly grateful for all that they do.
Simeon’s volunteers include volunteers from EU countries and from other countries throughout the world, as well as volunteers from the local community. Simeon’s volunteers also include young people volunteering at Simeon Care for the Elderly as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award.
