2021

Here at Airthrie we have a lot planned for the new year, first however we would like to update you on some topics we missed late last year. Both new rooms have now been completed and we are accepting referrals, last November we also welcomed a new service user to Airthrie who has settled in well.

In this new year we are aiming to make it more positive, we are currently working on Rix Multi-me, a secure social media site with access for service users, their family, and staff which we covered in more detail in our September/October articles, we have also welcomed another new service user in January who has also settled in well. We will update you on further plans & information throughout the year!
