Life at the house

We believe in enjoying later life and an Abbeyfield home will always offer residents the opportunities to get involved in activities and entertainment as much as they want.   

We offer opportunities for residents to partake in a number of activities and events. We understand the importance of our residents emotional and physical well-being and keeping active and enjoying later life is crucial to this.

Our staff will always do their best to involve all residents and cater for any restrictions they have.


Our cooks provide healthy and delicious meals every day that are cooked and prepared on site. Our fully qualified cooks pride themselves on providing excellent food which is all freshly prepared, and where possible, using locally sourced produce.

Each home has an individual approach to catering for their residents, with menus being tailored to dietary needs and special events. But we always offer plenty of choices, including vegetarian options, and great portion sizes!

Meal time at an Abbeyfield is also important as it’s when the whole house gets together - a time to have a chat enjoying great food and great company.
