Services

VSA’s Forest Grove is a day centre for adults aged over 50 who are cared for at home. Visitors can enjoy themed rooms and stimulating activities, including the gym, IT, a Wii, baking, a relaxation room, a reminiscence room, a traditional sweet shop, a hairdressing salon and nail bar, arts and crafts, games, cards, karaoke and a private garden with a summer house.

Sessions cost £4 and run 9.00am-12.30pm and 1.00pm-4.30pm Monday to Friday. A booking system is in place up to two weeks in advance but emergency spaces will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

A weekend day care service is part of VSA’s Forest Grove. It provides respite for carers and an opportunity for older people with dementia to socialise and enjoy specialist activities. For some, company and conversation is enough.  Activities, such as reminiscence, gentle exercise, games, physical and mental activities, are important for others.  Members speak up about their own interests and this is used for planning new activities and trips. There is also a Wednesday night carers group to promote networking.

This service runs every Saturday and Sunday between 9.00am and 4.00pm at 22 King’s Gate, Aberdeen. It accommodates fifteen service users at one time. Transport may be provided.
