FIR Park will play host to a new cafe aimed at helping those with memory problems.

The Living Well with Dementia Cafe will run out of Motherwell FC’s Centenary Suite on the first Friday of every month.

Customers can ask questions and get information and advice from health professionals about memory issues they have.

Professionals will include specialist doctors, memory service nurses, an advocacy worker, a welfare benefits officer, an occupational therapist and representatives of Alzheimer Scotland, Carers Together and North Lanarkshire Council’s housing and social work department.
