Letter from our Chief Executive
Hello, Thank you for visiting our website. Abbeyfield Bristol & Keynsham Society is a not-for-profit charity offering a wonderful alternative for older people wishing to remain independent, but looking for additional peace of mind. As part of the international Abbeyfield brand, we enjoy international support and recognition, whilst our residents benefit from our links and partnerships with the community. As a non-profit organisation, all profits are ploughed back into our Houses, so we can provide the best home environment for you.
These are exciting times for us. Whilst we currently offer houses in the Bristol area – in Easter Compton, Hanham, Henleaze and Redland – in 2016, our 50th year, we opened our fifth house, this time in Keynsham, near Bath. We’ve sympathetically refurbished this glorious Victorian home to accommodate 14 one-bedroom and studio flats for our residents. Set within walking distance to local shops; with beautiful, landscaped gardens; and spacious open-plan communal rooms, we are confident that our new residents will be delighted with their new home.
Whether you choose a studio, or one-bedroom flat, it’s yours to make your own. In our experience, bringing familiar furniture, accessories and belongings, will soon help you settle in. We like to think of our houses as a collection of individuals’ homes within one supportive house. I hope you’ll appreciate the difference. If you’d like to arrange a visit to one, or more, of our houses, please call us on 0117 973 6997. Our friendly, helpful staff will help you arrange everything. I do hope to meet you shortly.
