The community of Giffnock House
Just twenty minutes from the centre of Glasgow, there is a lovely community of older people living independently, in their own private accommodation. Abbeyfield Scotland’s Giffnock house provides people with their own space in a safe and secure environment with en-suite facilities and the benefit of cooked meals.
Giffnock house is perfect for people looking to downsize to a smaller home while having the additional support of staff members from Abbeyfield focus on their care and happiness. Located close to Glasgow, residents can access all that the city has to offer and remain within easy reach of loved ones.
Like all Abbeyfield Scotland residences, Giffnock house boasts a bright, spacious communal area, perfect for catching up with other tenants for a chat, games, and other regular group activities.
Carolynn Malone, Service Manager for Abbeyfield Scotland, said:
“We know from the people who live in Giffnock that they love having their own private accommodation with the added security of ongoing support from the staff at Abbeyfield Scotland. Whether you’re enjoying volunteer-run events like a Burns supper, or just chatting with friends in the beautiful garden, you can have the best of both worlds. Another benefit of Giffnock house is its proximity to the city, so you can still enjoy all it has to offer and stay close to family and loved ones.”
Recent highpoints for residents included a visit from a Patterdale terrier, Holly, who is over sixteen and a half years old. The house also has excellent support among the Giffnock community, including the Minnesota Fats Snooker Club, who delivered a morale-boosting afternoon tea for the residents during the recent lockdown.
Whether it’s joining fellow residents for a games afternoon, a cocktail hour, or enjoying the beautiful and generous shared garden, Abbeyfield Scotland’s Giffnock house is a perfect solution for people who want the best of both worlds.
