Our Community Based Facility
Forest Grove is the first of its kind; it’s a community-based facility, to support individuals over the age of 50 with a mental or physical illness, who are cared for at home in the Aberdeen area.
We can support around 150 people each week, giving the individual routine, stability and something to look forward to while their carers benefit from some respite.
Full day sessions are available from 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Friday at a cost of £10 per day.
Morning or afternoon
Four-hour morning or afternoon sessions are also available at a cost of £4 per session.
Flexible sessions are made available to meet the needs of individuals who would benefit attending but find it difficult to commit to the above sessions.
Activities on offer at Forest Grove include: crafts, board games, dominoes, darts, baking, snooker, karaoke, cards, reminiscence, films, music and quizzes. We also offer computer access, Wii games, relaxation sessions, sweet shop, a hairdressing salon complete with nail bar and gardening in the private garden with summer house.
Forest Grove places great importance on the wellbeing benefits of physical activity; and we therefore offer a range of more physical activities including a small gym, hockey, curling, bowling and woodwork.
Referrals can be made personally or through a professional.
Please note: Forest Grove does not have hoisting equipment therefore service users must be able to weight bear.
