IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Our Abbeyfield houses around the country are at Alert Level 2 due to Covid-19. This means there are restrictions on visitors: only family and friends, care providers, authorised contractors and suppliers, and Abbeyfield committee members are allowed to visit. No one should visit an Abbeyfield house if they are feeling unwell.
We ask people to please follow the rules and advice of the Abbeyfield houses – we want to protect our residents, staff and volunteers.

Will an Abbeyfield house suit me?

If you’re over 65, have modest assets, and can live flexibly with others, an Abbeyfield house could be right for you. We accept residents on the basis of need and suitability.
