The Abbeyfield Society mission

It is Abbeyfield’s mission to enhance the quality of life for older people. The Society offers a wide range of services from independent or supported living, through to residential and dementia care.

They aim to provide a service which offers a home for life integrated in a local community with high quality accommodation and a stimulating environment to maintain a socially active community that will directly benefit the mind, body and soul.

What makes Abbeyfield different?

Abbeyfield believes in making time for older people. That means engagement with residents, whether that is making the time to have a chat or to listen without worry of time pressure. Abbeyfield can offer this to their residents due to the charitable nature of the organisation. They have thousands of volunteers across their homes that work in conjunction with staff to allow them to provide that little bit extra. The homes also interact with their local community to enhance the lives of residents. Read more about the Abbeyfield Society here.
