Abbeyfield Houses provide a "home within a home" to lonely or isolated seniors who are no longer willing or able to live alone.It offers a warm, family-style house and a balance between privacy and companionship, security and independence, combined with the special caring element provided by dedicated volunteers.

Abbeyfield Houses are administered by non-profit societies and the cost is kept as low as possible; the monthly rental charges include all food and bills.All you have to worry about is getting to know your new neighbours!
As Abbeyfield is not a nursing home, residents should not need any long term nursing care; Abbeyfield aims to remove the stress of managing a house alone and to combat the isolation that many seniors face.
