Meet our staff
The Abbeyfield House is run by the House Keeper and Deputy House Keeper who are qualified cooks and experienced managers. They are supported by a General Assistant and Senior House Manager.
We are fortunate in recruiting and retaining high quality staff who are passionate about providing excellent service to our residents, many of whom have lived with us for many years.
Sustainability is an important principle and we use local shops and businesses whenever possible.
Our staff and volunteers are always helpful and welcoming to relatives and friends, and we encourage guests for lunch and promote our attractive respite room for short stays and recuperation.
We actively encourage residents at the sheltered home to get involved with the local community, as well as encouraging the local community into the house with activities and groups.
We organise a number of social activities and events, especially suitable for older people, so there's always something to keep you occupied or to look forward to.
Regular activities include:
• Coffee mornings
• Afternoon tea
• Arts and crafts
• Gentle exercise classes
Ad hoc events include:
• Pub lunches
• Day trips to local attractions
• Birthday parties
• Summer garden party
• Christmas party
