Meet the lovely Val Gribben who came to live at Abbeyfield House in Henleaze last week. Since her retirement, Val says she has lived alone for many years but always enjoyed the support of good friends, family and neighbours. However, as she approached her 80th year, she became inspired by The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a favourite film, and subsequent TV series, and began to look for a new home where she could be part of a community of people of a similar age and circumstances, and yet remain largely independent.
“I have found it here in Abbeyfield House! After only a few weeks, and despite the current constraints on ‘normal’ communal living during the pandemic, I feel very much at home”.
We are delighted to have you – Welcome Val!
