Abbeyfield House Parkdale provides family-style accommodation for up to 10 independent seniors. Life in Abbeyfield House preserves privacy and independence, yet its supportive atmosphere provides companionship and freedom from worries and chores.
Primarily intended as a permanent home for seniors, Abbeyfield has reviewed how it can best serve the continuum of continuing care in Ottawa. While Abbeyfield House has no medical staff, support from the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC), both personal and homemaking, may allow frail seniors to stay here, depending on their condition. The staff at Abbeyfield House Parkdale provide nutritious meals, security, and stability, and maintain a comfortable and harmonious atmosphere. The House is wheelchair and walker accessible, with an elevator/lift, hand rails in the hallways, and grab rails in each private bathroom.
All suites at Abbeyfield are bright, self-furnished bed-sitting rooms with a private bath. Residents bring their own furnishings to create unique private spaces within Abbeyfield House.
The monthly rate for a suite at Abbeyfield is affordable and includes parking and the use of laundry facilities. Residents are responsible for telephone, Internet and cable services.
Abbeyfield Ottawa currently charges $2,100 monthly which is significantly lower than the price of for-profit retirement establishments in the area. Our aim is that low income should not be a barrier to living in an Abbeyfield House.
