Overview

Our two houses (24 and 26 East Street) together accommodate 15 people but we retain a housekeeper in each house so residents are served meals in two dining rooms one for seven people and the other for eight. This ensures that the houses are homely and special to each group of residents. We have recently linked the houses with a large and elegant sun lounge (2013) opening onto our lovely combined and secluded garden.

One room available to let - contact us today


Each resident has their own flatlet including an en-suite with shower and toilet and a small kitchenette for making drinks or snacks. Our rooms are unfurnished so residents bring their own furniture to make the rooms homely and familiar.

We have dedicated housekeepers with a real empathy for older people. They ensure that the houses are warm, comfortable and safe and that the daily meals provided are varied, nutritious and enjoyable. Lunch and dinner are both home-cooked and served in the two dining room, making mealtimes a social occasion, while residents make breakfast in their own rooms – a gentle start to the day.

The houses have dedicated housekeepers however residents can gain additional support from a Careline provider for out of office hours. Each resident is provided with a pendant and has a support system in their bedroom and en-suite. The support systems are also situated in our communal areas.

Life at the house

Coffee morningThe activities we have are very varied, not only within our houses but with local outings.

Periodically we hire a 15 seat accessible minibus with a volunteer driver and go on trips to local attractions such larger garden centre's etc.

We have a computer (PC)  in the sun lounge which is freely available to residents for access to the Internet, Skype etc and our whole establishment has WiFi access also freely available to all.

The sun lounge connects our two houses together and is where residents may socialise. A group often gathers before lunch for a chat.

There is a large communal garden with seating areas and a potting shed with an attractive bow window which is for residents to use throughout the year.

Abbeyfield Fareham has a keen gardening group led by a dedicated volunteer.

Each spring we enter ‘Fareham in Bloom’. There is a hive of activity as our residents nurture seedlings, plant them outside and keep them watered. For several years we have won a Silver Gilt award from Fareham in Bloom.

Birthdays are always a special time for our residents and they choose what we eat at their birthday tea. 

At Christmas time a local church choir joins us for a carol singing evening with wine and mince pies, everyone looks forward to this.

In the summer we hold a cream tea and a family barbecue in our grounds where our residents, their relatives and friends as well as our volunteers and staff socialise.

Two delicious and nutritious home-cooked meals are provided every day by our housekeepers in each house.

We provide facilities in your own room for making breakfast, so you can start your day whenever it suits you.

Chef cooking mushroomsOur residents mostly enjoy good old fashioned English cuisine. Their favourites include liver and bacon, cottage pie, steak and kidney pie or pudding at lunchtime, plus of course a traditional roast on Sunday. Sometimes we serve spaghetti bolognese, a curry, or on a Saturday a brunch style lunch is always welcomed. For dessert apple crumble, cherry pie or a mousse is popular.

In the evening our residents enjoy quiche with salad, hot sausage rolls with baked beans, sardines on toast or a ham sandwich.

A dessert is always served after lunch and homemade cake in the evening. A fresh fruit bowl is available at all times for you to help yourself.

If you have an allergy please discuss with our housekeeper who maintains an allergen folder that shows the content of all foods found in our kitchens and the notice board has on it a list 14 categories of food that may contain allergens.
