More upgrades are coming at the Geriatric Hospital.
That's the word from Health Minister Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey Bostic.
He was speaking at the official opening ceremony of a newly renovated block at the Beckles Road healthcare facility Wednesday morning.
Meanwhile more Barbadians will have an opportunity to volunteer and offer their skills to geriatric hospital patients.
It comes as the association of Friends of the Geriatric Hospital will be launching a volunteer programme from next year.
The association's president, Cecelia Mayers believes the initiative is timely.
Ms. Mayers explains that young people will also have a chance to interact with and learn from the early contributors to Barbados' development when its gen-link programme is relaunched.
