Sheltered Housing Flats
Forestgait Lodge provides 19 flats that are available to rent for people over the age of 60 who have been assessed as requiring the support and security of sheltered housing. Our flats are rented unfurnished with tenants living independently in their own home. Accommodation consists of one or two bedrooms, self-contained kitchen, bathroom and living room.
All flats supported by VSA are monitored by an on-site ‘warden call’ system during the hours of 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, and 9am to 1pm, Saturday and Sunday. Outwith these hours the site is monitored by the regional communications centre at Frederick Street, Aberdeen.
Tenants at Forestgait Lodge and Richmondhill Court have access to communal facilities at flat 11 Forestgait Lodge and are supported to arrange and participate in a variety of activities. Tenants of Forestgait Lodge are also invited to attend a selection of activities at Forest Grove. This type of service, although of a low level, has a high impact in improving the quality, safety and security of the tenants, helping them maintain their tenancies and independence while also reducing social isolation and anxiety.
