New life is being breathed into Station View, a community service in the heart of Starbeck which serves people from right across Harrogate and the surrounding towns and villages.
The North Yorkshire County Council-run service offers short breaks for people with dementia and people with learning disabilities; daytime activities; and rehabilitation to prevent people being admitted to hospital and/or to help them recover after a hospital stay – working in partnership with the NHS.
The building, on the High Street, is being refurbished and friends and residents and the staff team got together recently for a great day out working on a dementia-friendly garden.
County Councillor Michael Harrison, executive member for adult social care and health integration, said: “Station View provides a vital local service and we have invested new money to expand the services that it provides”.
