Overview

The Abbeyfield Liskeard Society specialises in providing supported living accommodation for older people who wish to remain independent in a friendly and peaceful environment.

Carol Davies House was purchased in 1981 and coverted to make comfortable studios and apartments, where residents have their own room and front door key, to be able to come and go as they please.

There is a light and airy communal lounge on the ground floor which opens out on to a level, paved patio area where residents can share time over a coffee. Home cooked, nutritious meals are provided twice daily at lunch time and early evening in the communal dining room by our housekeeper and her team of excellent cooks.

Abbeyfield Liskeard Society is an independent charity affiliated to the Abbeyfield Society which was founded in 1956 by Richard Carr-Gomm to help alleviate loneliness of older people and enhance their quality of life. Integral to all Abbeyfield Societies are the volunteers and staff who manage the house and come from a wide range of backgrounds, but all have one thing in common – a desire to help and support older people to live their lives to the full in a safe and homely environment.

The monthly cost for accommodation includes all heating, lighting, water, window cleaning, garden and internal maintenance, council tax, emergency alarm call and two cooked meals a day. In fact it covers all but your personal expenses, telephone and internet and TV licence if under the age of 75 years.

The house has a lift for your convenience should you need it.

Life at the house

We believe in enjoying later life and an Abbeyfield house will always offer residents the opportunities to get involved in activities and entertainment - which are a big part of life in our houses!   

We offer an extensive activity programme within our Supported Houses, with our teams dedicated to coordinating events. We understand the importance of our residents’ emotional and physical well-being, and keeping active and enjoying later life is crucial to this.

Keeping active is important for older people and we offer numerous opportunities for residents to stay active, but it’s always the residents choice to get involved, with their independence and choice always being respected.  

Two nutritious meals are provided each day in the communal dining room, with an emphasis on fresh food and home cooking.
Although main meals are normally served in the dining room, arrangements can be made for meals to be brought to a room if a
resident is feeling unwell. Residents are consulted as to their likes and dislikes and alternatives are always offered.

Breakfast items are provided for the resident to make their own breakfast in their room, when they want each morning.

Residents are consulted as to their likes and dislikes and alternatives are always offered.
