Meet our staff
Sheltered housing is all about supporting residents but allowing them to live independently. Our staff and volunteers take this into account when running Ryde's two homes.
Each house has a resident Housekeeper and a deputy together with a domestic help. There is also a company secretary. Our volunteer base is very strong with a large house committee that is diligent in ensuring the well-being of the residents. The Chairman also undertakes a great deal of day to day maintenance around the houses.
Our housekeepers specialise in home cooking and baking and are greatly praised by our residents.
Our House Committee volunteers are tremendously dedicated we believe they are outstanding in their commitment to Abbeyfield.
The Society ensures a steady programme of social activities with talks, visits or social events and every opportunity is taken to arrange a get-together between the houses as often as possible. Regular events and activities include theatre trips and meals out.
