Balhousie Wheatland’s Care Home has been shortlisted for the Most Innovative Partnership award at this year’s prestigious Scottish Dementia Awards. The Stirlingshire Care Home has been recognised for their work with Lingo Flamingo CIC, a social enterprise that teaches foreign languages to vulnerable adults. The tailored sessions, which were introduced into the Care Home late last year, aim to help residents with early forms of dementia by improving communication, cognitive development and their inter-personal skills.
