Lifestyle at Abbeyfield in Hornby

We  provide a peaceful, friendly atmosphere where residents  live with independence, companionship and security in a family style environment. It could be your home within a home offering support when you need it from our professional and caring house staff and volunteers.



Type of accommodation

12 high quality studio rooms with ensuite and private patios are provided for people who want to be as self-reliant as possible without the worry of maintaining their own home.
 

Eligibility

We make no capital charge

Any single or widowed person over 65 years of age who is able to care for their personal needs independently may be considered for residency.

Even if you have limited assets, if you meet the criteria for a Housing Accommodation Supplement or living alone allowance, the weekly charge will be affordable. Those with modest incomes or savings are also eligible for consideration as residents. 

About this property

All studios have an ensuite bathroom and  are unfurnished so that you may bring your own furniture, truly making it a home from home. The house has been specifically designed for us. It is very accessible as it is level throughout, suitable for wheelchair and walker frame users.  An on-site house keeper will ensure that the house is warm, comfortable and safe and that the daily meals provided are varied, nutritious and enjoyable.

Abbeyfield house management

The property is managed by Abbeyfield Christchurch Inc. a registered charity. Regular resident meetings give residents an opportunity to contribute to the running of the house. The volunteer, non-profit management helps keep our rent affordable.
