Loose Woman.


In a time when slagging off the health and care sectors has become a national sport, I'd like to do a tiny bit to redress the balance.

The other week, I had the privilege of visiting a care home called Marchglen near Alloa.

It's a brand spanking new, state-of-the-art facility which caters for adults with learning and physical disabilities.

Given the tragic nature of many of the residents' stories, it could easily be a miserable place but thanks to the surroundings, remarkably strong family support and the dedicated staff, it's not. In fact, I only heard one complaint when I was there - that no-one wants to hear about the good care homes, only the bad ones. I know Marchglen isn't alone, let's hear it for the good ones.
