Independent Living houses with extra care

What is Independent Living?

Abbeyfield's Independent Living developments offer people in later life an independent style of accommodation. This type of housing is for older people, with few or no care needs, who want to live safe in the knowledge that should their needs change in the future, assistance is available - with our Independent Living with extra care services. 

What’s included?


Independent living apartments

At our Independent Living schemes the apartments are fully fitted with kitchens for residents to prepare meals, some developments also have restaurants for residents to enjoy meeting up with their new found friends. 

The sites have a range of leisure facilities and there are opportunities to enjoy a busy social calendar. You’ll also find:

  • onsite support 24 hours a day should you require assistance
  • personal care and support in your own home for as little as one or two hours a week. If your needs increase then we can offer assistance with bathing and other personal needs.
  • You can also purchase services such as the provision of home cooked meals, cleaning or help with your shopping.

What might life be like in an Abbeyfield Independent Living House? 

Our Independent Living developments are made up of 1, 2 or 3 bedroom, high quality, self contained apartments. The tenure options available include buying, shared ownership, rent or leasehold but this does vary from development to development so it is advised to check what is available at the one you’re interested in.
