A support service to help adults who are battling social isolation in Dundee has been praised in an inspection report.

Mid-Lin Day Care, based in the city’s Pitkerro Drive, has been given grades of “very good” for its quality of care, and also its management.

The facility aims to alleviate social isolation and provide users with a friendly social and supportive experience.

It was visited by bosses at the Care Inspectorate recently, where it was commended for its “warm, active environment” and its “community feel of the service”.

In the report by care bosses, it stated: “Staff spoken with were well trained.

“They were also well supported via supervision, appraisal and regular team meetings.

“Staff members were able to express the provider’s way of working with people.

“They all spoke with positive regard towards the people they worked with and were able to show how they promoted outcomes, such as independence and respect.

“The inspector was impressed with the extensive use of volunteers to augment the permanent staff.

“This had the dual outcome of bringing people from the local community into the service and giving service users more people to interact with, support and be supported by.”

The Care Inspectorate also found that the service had “very good” levels of care, support and management.
