What is Abbeyfield Supported Living?

The Abbeyfield Supported Living concept is very simple. A group of 11 residents of retirement age live in their own private en-suite studio apartments furnished with their own things. Snacks and drinks are also available throughout the day and everything needed for a self-serve breakfast is delivered directly to residents. The residents share lunch and dinner in comfortable dining facilities. The Abbeyfield team attends to the daily running of the house, the shopping and the preparation and serving of meals.

Privacy and independence are preserved yet the gentle supportive domestic atmosphere provides companionship and freedom from worries and chores.
