Rand Aid’s Wedge Gardens Treatment Centre is offering accommodation for those looking for independence

Wedge Gardens offers safe and independent living.

The Rand Aid Association in Whitney Gardens is now offering accommodation for men over 50 years old who live independently but who seek a structured environment, located on the same property as Rand Aid’s Wedge Gardens Treatment Centre.

A spokesperson for the association Cathy Grosvenor said, “The centre, which is run by NPO Rand Aid, recognises that people who have battled addiction issues in the past, or who have overcome other challenges, may need a more nurturing environment in which to live.”

The accommodation is offered on a full board and lodging basis in a secure environment and is aimed at people who function in society and who hold down a job or volunteer position, but who find it difficult to cope in a totally independent environment.

Although medical assistance exists in the case of an emergency, care facilities are not offered.

Grosvenor said, “While the accommodation wing is situated on the same grounds as Rand Aid’s substance abuse treatment centre, it is set some distance away and has a separate entrance. However, access control is in place to prevent alcohol or drugs from being brought onto the premises.”
