Overview

Built in 1964, Abbeyfield House is a beautiful house which provides supported housing for older people in Horsham. Recently renovated in 2017, it comprises of 13 rooms and three communal bathrooms, which all have baths and walk-in showers. All of our rooms have an internal call system and telephone point to provide residents and their loved ones with peace of mind.

Located in the historic market town of Horsham, our house is just a three minute walk from the local hospital and a ten minute walk from the town centre, where you can take in all of the old English culture that the area promotes.
Our lively and diverse group of residents are all involved in the local community and are encouraged to be independent with support, companionship and friendship from each other and our dedicated staff.

“I like that fact that I’m independent still, not made to get up at certain times and can enjoy my later years at my pace.” – Louise, resident at Abbeyfield House

Our communal dining room, lounge or garden provides the perfect spot to form friendships with other residents or bring families and friends. Coffee is served daily at 10am in our conservatory which overlooks our beautiful garden, which is in full bloom in the summer. Our residents love to sit or take a stroll around, taking in all of the wonderful wildlife.

At Abbeyfield House we value and respect the opinions, suggestions and ideas of our residents, and here in Horsham, our residents hold regular meetings to help influence house decisions and choices. We often hold events in our communal areas and have volunteers who come over weekly to spend time with the residents.

Life at the house

We want Abbeyfield House to feel like a home from home, so we host a range of activities which friends and families are invited to join a family member for a meal at the house, or attend one of our summer garden parties or come to our coffee mornings and have a natter and enjoy some cake and a selection of biscuits.

“The garden is so well maintained and I enjoy all the wildlife we get in the garden throughout the seasons. I enjoy going out and feeding the birds each morning.” Margaret, resident at Abbeyfield House
