The keys to the new Bellfield Centre have been handed over. The ceremonial honour was carried out by Keiran Day, a 21 year old trainee site manager with builders Robertson, who was one of hundreds of construction staff involved in building the flagship Centre which forms part of the new £37m Stirling Health and Care Village.
The new Centre, which opens in December 2018, will provide short-term care, assessment or rehabilitation for older people who require additional support following an illness or operation. The Centre, which will have the capacity to care for 116 people across four short-stay areas, will also provide support for people with dementia and those who need palliative or end of life care. In addition, it will have a café, hairdresser, retail space, landscaped areas and a multipurpose area which can be used by local community groups and volunteers.
