In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

You'll get a self-contained unfurnished flat with a lounge, kitchen, bedroom and private bathroom and/or shower. There's a communal lounge for social activities, and family and friends can even stay on site in a guest bedroom. And, because we are regularly inspected by the Care Inspectorate, you can expect the highest standard of quality and care.

We are very happy to arrange visits for prospective residents and their families. To visit the sheltered housing complex or to make an appointment for an assessment of a prospective resident’s care needs, please contact our office on 0131 478 7401.
