Wishart says adult day care guidance is “welcome, but well overdue”


Commenting on the publication of Scottish Government guidance for re-opening adult day care services, Shetland’s MSP Beatrice Wishart said:

“The publication of this guidance is welcome, but is well overdue. It’s over a month since I first raised this with the First Minister, when families were already telling me they couldn’t cope.  

“Since then I have been contacted by more local families, as well as by people on the Mainland who are also struggling with the lack of support available.

“As I have said before, these support services are not a luxury. Respite services still need more support, and the Scottish Government must do everything within their power to get them up and running as soon as is safely possible.”
