East Dunbartonshire Council's assisted living show flat will showcase equipment and technology available to help people.

The demonstration flat is fully furnished and decorated to look homely while discretely housing dozens of aids, such as blinds that shut at the touch of a button and panic alarms, as well as adaptations.

The open days take place on Monday from 10am-4pm and Tuesday between 3pm-7pm, when people can go into the flat at 10 Auchinairn Gate, Brookfield Road, Bishopbriggs.

Councillor Michael O'Donnell, convener of the council's social work committee, said: "With so many different products on the market, being able to see how they work in a real home situation and have their benefits explained by social work staff will help service users make the right decisions and give their carers peace of mind."
