Living in Abbeyfield

Residents moving into Abbeyfield are encouraged to bring their own furniture and treasured possessions to make their rooms familiar, homely and comfortable. As well as the individual bed-sitting rooms, each house has a pleasant lounge and garden. There is also a cheerful kitchen and dining area, where the housekeeper prepares and serves delicious lunches and suppers every day.

Most of the bed-sitting rooms are fully en-suite and our Sutton and Cheam houses also have compact kitchenettes. As residents are responsible for their own breakfast, they have facilities to prepare it in their rooms and can therefore, rise at whatever time they wish and are able to make drinks during the day

Our dedicated housekeepers provide two home-cooked meals a day, and play a central role in making the house a friendly and supportive home for the residents. Each house is managed by a volunteer house committee, and individual members of this committee act as shadows and befriend the residents.

Because the four houses offer sheltered accommodation and not care facilities, new residents have to be able to care for themselves and live reasonably independently. However, people grow older and more frail, and find simple tasks of day-to-day living harder to accomplish. In these circumstances, Abbeyfield Southern Oaks can assist residents to arrange for someone to help with laundry and housework, and for community based carers to give personal help with washing and dressing etc.
