Your well-being and quality of life lies at the very heart of everything we do. You will have your own self-contained apartment with a fabulous en-suite bathroom and a kitchenette.

The apartments are neutrally decorated for you to furnish in your own style and are designed to take into account the needs of older people, and are adapted to help you with other considerations such as mobility. Our on-site handyman will assist with fixing picture hooks, putting up shelves, changing light bulbs, hanging curtains and carry out other jobs. This is part of the all-inclusive service we offer.

Life at the house

JigsawThe house also organises a number of social activities for older people. The Buckland Monachorum volunteers organise trips out for those who wish to go, as well as a monthly film in the local church hall. We join activities with other Abbeyfield houses in the area and our local residential home.

Pilcher's Field sheltered house also runs a monthly coffee morning and numerous quizzes, as well as house events like bring and buy sales and we invite guest speakers from time to time which always proves popular.

Our aim is to offer entertaining and involved activities and services for residents who wish to participate in them, and to offer a consistent supported environment to allow our elderly guests to feel safe and looked after.

Afternoon teaOne service provided is the great locally sourced food. Our team of staff provide the cereal, bread, etc. for residents to prepare their own breakfast in their individual in-room kitchen. Coupled with this all lunch and high tea meals are fully catered for with great food prepared on site for residents to enjoy in the communal dinning room area.
