Overview

Abbeyfield House Irvine provides care and support for those who need long term help with dressing, walking, general care and social stimulation. We aim to provide physical and emotional support in a family atmosphere whether the need is for residential or nursing care. Independence and privacy of residents is respected at all times, which has resulted in our policy of allowing the furnishing of bedrooms with their own belongings.

The house is a two-storey extended family home with a single floor wing to the front and provides a total of 26 beds. Four of the larger rooms can accommodate two beds. All rooms have en-suite facilities with showers and the main bathroom has a hospital style bath with a hoist for the very frail.

We have a state of the art laundry system, which not only cleans gently but also kill viruses and super-bugs and the main lounge and dining room has a ventilation system, which keeps the air fresh and odour free.

A well-kept garden is available to all residents; this incorporates a sheltered patio and a secure and sunny inner garden.

Care at Abbeyfield Irvine

We are able to provide physical and mental care on an individual basis. Needs range from residential care - prompting with minimal assistance, to providing full nursing care – residents who require to have all their needs met by staff. Hospital admission is only when hospital treatment is necessary.

By being able to provide a full range of care, residents are able to remain with us until the end of their life. The care being provided is by trained staff who residents know and trust.

This house is managed by Abbeyfield Irvine & District.

Life at the house

DancingWe have a full-time Activities Team who have a wide experience of physical, mental and social stimulation. They are highly qualified in the care field with a wealth of practical experience. In addition to this they continually strive to increase their knowledge by attending training courses and visiting other units. The enthusiasm is such that everyone becomes involved in activities and outings.

Group activities include coffee afternoons, word searches and quizzes and sing-a-longs.  In addition to these practical groups are encouraged, needlework, baking, flower arranging and gardening are among the activities provided.  We are of course aware that not everyone wishes to participate in group activities so time is set aside for one-to-one sessions.

Our philosophy in Abbeyfield is to encourage residents to retain or regain their community links and so visits to the library, shops etc. feature in our day-to-day activities. The proximity of the town centre to the house means that, weather permitting, residents can walk to the shops.
