IF a move into sheltered housing is something you have considered but you are not sure what to expect, then a drop-in session tomorrow (Wednesday) offers an opportunity to find out more.
Aberdeenshire Council is hosting the event at Carnegie Court / McDonald Court on Wednesday, September 18 from 2pm to 4pm, to mark Scottish Housing Day. Similar sessions are being held in towns across the Shire.
Information on the services and facilities offered by sheltered housing will be provided along with light refreshments. The event is free and will initiate a point of contact and offer guidance and support for individuals interested in taking up accommodation at a sheltered home.
Communities Committee chair Cllr Anne Stirling said: “Considering a move into sheltered housing is a big decision for anybody and it is not always easy to know where to start, these drop-in events aim to provide a foundation of support within local communities and foster an awareness and understanding of sheltered housing in Aberdeenshire.”
“We hope these drop-in events will help inform the public on local sheltered homes and encourage them to explore their housing options.”
Aberdeenshire Council’s housing team is available to provide additional support and advice to those interested in discussing their housing options. Please reach out with any further queries or concerns to 01467 536492
