Living at Abbeyfield Port Alberni

Abbeyfield Port Alberni is a single-story building with 21 rooms available for residence. Each room has an ensuite. Several rooms have showers. There are 3 tub/shower rooms for common use. Each resident is responsible for furnishing their own room and is free to decorate it to their own tastes.

The Home is run by the non-profit Abbeyfield Houses Alberni Valley Society. The Board of Directors consists of members from the community.

There are seven permanent staff members – a Director of Resident Support and Operations, Manager of Housekeeping and Food Services, and several cooks, kitchen helpers and housekeepers.

Residents must be of reasonable health and able to be at least semi-independent. Abbeyfield does not provide any nursing or personal care, although residents can draw upon Community Home Services for some daily assistance at their own expense.

If you are reasonably healthy and are feeling insecure or lonely in your current accommodations, Abbeyfield might well be the perfect home for you.

We ask each applicant to designate a trusted relative, friend or professional advisor who can be contacted and consulted in case of an emergency or other difficulty. No financial involvement is required on their part.

An Application for Residence is available by emailing abbeymanager@shaw.ca, phoning (250) 724-5054, or (250) 720-1701 or dropping in to the office at 3839 8th Avenue, from 9am to 4pm on weekdays. The Director of Resident Support and Operations is happy to provide a detailed tour of the facilities for anyone who is interested in making Abbeyfield their home. Appointments are appreciated.

The monthly cost is currently $1450 which includes basic cablevision, wi-fi, laundry facilities, lunch and dinner, with provisions for making your own breakfast. This may increase, but the intent is to keep the cost to an amount affordable to seniors even on basic pensions. This does not cover personal telephone or Lifeline.
