A NEW day care centre for elderly residents and dementia sufferers has been launched.

The Golborne-based Bridgewater centre provides activities and services for its members, providing relief for relatives who look after them. Former MP Sir Ian McCartney and Wigan Mayor Coun Billy Rotherham attended the open event where prospective users were invited to register.

Centre owner Phil Eckersley said: “The open day was a good opportunity for those interested in the day care to put themselves on the waiting list. Carers are often seeking somewhere to get respite and they know their relatives are in good hands.”
