Meet Scott from Abbeyfield Lenzie

With only three days to go until the International Day of Older People, we have been speaking to our residents about why they chose Abbeyfield for supported living in Scotland.


Meet Scott from Abbeyfield Lenzie!

  ‘My name is Scott. My full name is Walter Scott Williamson, but I’m best known as Scott. I am a Lenzie boy; some call me Old Lenzie! That’s probably because I grew up here. I have even watched my primary school being turned into impressive flats here!’


We asked Scott what was important when choosing accommodation?

‘I need safety and Security. I’ve lost all my immediate family, and I need the stability of a familiar environment where I grew up.’


Why did he choose Abbeyfield?

I chose Abbeyfield because I saw first-hand the great work Abbeyfield did for my late mother. Abbeyfield is also right next door to where I grew up. Abbeyfield feels much a home!

Many thanks Scott for sharing your story!
