Works on the Nonsuch Abbeyfield Extra Care Community on Old School Lane, Ewell have started. Enabling works including demolition of the existing buildings and establishment of the site compound are underway. Castleoak, our construction partner, will then start the construction works in late December 2017 with completion of the building in the latter half of 2019.

New Development in Ewell


We believe that local people have an essential part to play in helping older people in our community to live a more supported, fulfilling and secure life in their declining years.We already have close to 100 volunteers giving some of their valuable time to Abbeyfield Southern Oaks. However, we are always ready to welcome new faces, so as to spread the commitment, and to replace those loyal friends who feel that they have reached an age/stage of life when volunteering is no longer for them. There are lots of worthwhile ways in which volunteers help us to make living in Abbeyfield extra special for our residents. Some make up the committees which govern and supervise the operations and ethos of the two houses. Others act as ‘shadows' and ‘house friends', whose role is to provide pastoral support and friendship to individual residents, and to help enhance the ‘family' feel of the houses by extending the services provided by the housekeeper and other staff.
