Welcome to our house

We do everything possible to ensure your move into our house is as easy and stress free as possible, and to make you feel welcome right from the start. Set just off the main road into Alnwick, the home sits in its own grounds and the town centre is just a short walk away. Easily accessed by car we are just a 20-minute drive north of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Abbeyfield House in Alnwick was purpose built and designed to create a comfortable atmosphere for elderly persons in need of assistance with daily life. It is based around a relaxing lounge and all bedrooms are on the ground floor allowing easy access. There are plenty of communal spaces in which to spend time relaxing or getting to know the other residents, such as the dining room, television lounge, conservatory and surrounding gardens, which have even won prizes over the years. There is a raised bed so that residents of all abilities can enjoy helping with the gardening.

The home offers fully supported accommodation for 25 residents in single rooms, some of which are en suite. There are bath and shower facilities with assistance for those who need it. Residents are encouraged to bring their own items of furniture to decorate their room and make it their home (Items must comply with fire regulations). All rooms have individual thermostats to set the temperature to suit personal needs and your room is your personal space, no one will enter without knocking.

The not for profit home is run by a committee of volunteers who meet monthly to receive the manager’s report, administer the budget and set strategies to ensure the best possible level of care is always available. The manger is registered, and the deputy is manager of care, teams of professional carers are led by experienced senior carers to provide the individual support required by residents. All residents have a personal care plan setting out their needs and wishes and all assistance is based upon individual requirements.

All areas of the house are cleaned on a regular basis by professional domestic staff and the hospitality team provide assistance with ordering meals and providing cups of tea.

Our Activities Co-ordinator plans a full and comprehensive programme to engage with as many of the residents as possible to help improve quality of life and physical movement. Mental stimulation and manual dexterity are offered in a caring and supportive atmosphere. Local churches attend regularly to provide spiritual support to residents and weekly mini-bus outings get the residents out and about to visit local landmarks.

A healthy, nutritious and well-balanced diet is always on offer with meals freshly prepared on site in the five-star commercial kitchen. Any special dietary needs can be catered for. A choice is available daily and meals can be taken in the dining room or, where necessary, delivered to the resident's room. Special menus are provided where care plans identify the need.

Water jugs are provided in each room and dispensers are located around the house to ensure residents maintain their levels of hydration.

This house is managed by Abbeyfield North Northumberland Extra Care Society.
