We provide a home away from home, set in beautifully maintained gardens, where you are encouraged to maintain relationships with family and friends, meet new people and participate in regular activities and outings.

We will support you in maintaining your independence and making your own decisions about your life.

Meet our staff

At an Abbeyfield Care Home, our fully qualified staff create a care plan tailored to each individual's needs. The staff at Abbeyfield totally understand the needs of those who now find it difficult to cope at without assistance.

Abbeyfield Care homes each have their own individual style which our staff nurture by offering residents a very personalised approach to their care, with security, independence and happiness at the heart of what they do.

This person-centred approach means all residents are respected as an individual and treated with dignity. Our fully qualified staff create a care plan tailored to each individual's needs 


Board gamesWe organise a wide range of leisure and social activities and you are welcome to join in any of the activities that appeal to you, and you can also suggest ideas for activities. You will be encouraged to pursue your own hobbies and interests as well as try out new experiences.


We have visits from entertainers and specialists who provide music, singing, theatre performances, exercise sessions, interaction with animals, reminiscence, flower arranging, manicures and hand massage.

Daily activities

In the home daily activities are organised such as baking, word games, dominoes, quizzes, board games, bowling, film showings and bingo.

Annual events

We have annual events particularly around Christmas and in the summer. At Christmas we have school choirs that visit to sing carols, and there is a Christmas party and raffle. During the summer months we usually organise a strawberry cream tea to coincide with Abbeyfield Week, and if the weather allows we have a barbeque.
