Chris Major

- House Manager

I have been in post as the Registered Manager of Castle Farm since 2005 and have a further 20 years’ experience working with older people. The Abbeyfield ethos and structure allow me to lead a successful and stable staff team, which enables us to provide the highest quality of care. I envisage that I will continue to enjoy my role with Abbeyfield for the foreseeable future.


ActivitiesFulfilment is at the heart of our offer. For some, that can be found by sitting in comfortable surroundings, enjoying the peace and quiet offered by our tranquil gardens; for others it’s heading out on an excursion or taking up a new hobby with friends.

We give residents the option of doing as much or as little as they please, and we encourage them and their families to participate in choosing what it is we offer.

Whether it’s arts and crafts, a spot of gentle exercise or regular outings to local places of interest, participating in the decision-making process allows residents to maintain their independence and interest levels.

Knowing that help is never far away, can raise confidence levels and get residents back to hobbies and pastimes they had perhaps given up on.
