Forrest House

Forrest House is a small residential home originally for adults with cerebral palsy, but also available to those with other conditions requiring a high level of care and support. It is situated in the residential area of Pollokshields, close to local amenities including public transport, shops, parks and the famous 'Tramway' with its secret gardens. The house consists of the original old villa plus a purpose built extension suitable for residents with physical and sensory impairment. Forrest House retains its original 'homely' atmosphere but with state of the art fire and safely equipment and services.
Our facilities include:
  • Large single rooms with en suite shower and toilet facilities. Each room has an overhead tracking hoist which connects the bedroom and en suite. Call system in each room. External doors lead onto the  garden area. Phone and internet connections in each room. All rooms have been tastefully decorated with the input of each resident.
    • Bright and spacious sun room which is used for social activities, arts and crafts etc.
    • Aromatherapy room used for relaxation and complimentary treatments such as aromatherapy, reflexology and indian head massage. We have a state of the art treatment bed suitable for individuals with physical disabilities as well as 2 shiatsu massage chairs. This is also used as a sensory room where residents can enjoy their choice of  music while  relaxing as they watch a restful colour changing projector.
    • A tastefully furnished dining room where all share a meal together or meet up for a coffee. Our cook is very much involved with everyone on a daily basis, and menus cater for individual tastes and specialised diets.
    • An additional bathroom with a state of the art Parker Bath suitable for disabled individuals. The bath can be accessed using an overhead tracking hoist and also features a spa facility which all residents can enjoy and benefit from.
    • All bedrooms are located off a main corridor and all doorways are suitable for wheelchair users. The design allows for extensive natural light making this space very bright and airy, which the artwork on the wall compliments. There is a fire exit at each end of the main corridor which facilitates quick evacuation in the event of an emergency.

    The front gardens feature two seating areas which are easily accessed. The rear gardens will be developed during 2011 to give a private garden area with raised beds and a water feature to create a restful, relaxing place for residents, their families and friends to sit on good days.
