Life with us

Each house has a guest room, where friends and family members can stay. The house committee welcomes the involvement of family members and sponsors. Residents and their family/sponsors are invited to give their views, share any concerns and make suggestions at regular consultation and review meetings.

“I was made most welcome by Committee members, staff and residents. I also appreciate the friendship of my ' shadow'   a wonderful bonus.”  (resident)

There are plenty of social activities throughout the year in each house, ranging from theatre trips to coffee mornings to exercise classes and visits from the local Brownie troupe. They are all optional, however, and residents are encouraged to keep up their own interests and hobbies.

“We are allowed our own space and able to do our own thing, which has always pleased me. The Housekeeper plays a big part in this, advises if requested, but never interferes. I enjoy the outings, and visits to see my grandchildren. I also look forward to visits from my ' shadow', who calls regularly.”  (resident)

Abbeyfield Southern Oaks is firmly rooted in the local community , and all three houses are ideally placed to allow residents to make maximum use of the wide range of opportunities and facilities available locally, such as churches, libraries, craft clubs, parks, cinemas and theatres. Volunteers known as House Friends are happy to provide transport if needed. The House Friends also cook meals in the houses on one day a week.

 “Pre Abbeyfield Mum didn't have any social interaction, so her life has been enriched here.”  (son)
