Abbeyfield Belgium

Abbeyfield Belgium promotes living a sociable, convivial life into your later years.

Founded in 1995 by Monique Verstraeten, Harold Herry, Xavier Leroy, Henri-Gilles Carton de Wiart en Léon Speeckaert in response to the needs and wants of Belgium's older people. 

Our homes are aimed at people aged 60 and over who wish to share with others a habitat where they combine privacy, group life and openness to the outside world, this allows them to:

  • make new connections with likeminded people
  • participate in new activities
  • continue to live an independent lifestyle
  • continue to live autonomously, making decisions about their own life. 

Today there are 9 Abbeyfield houses in Belgium.
