Independence, support, privacy and companionship.
Across all 5 of our lovely Abbeyfield houses, your well-being and quality of life lies at the very heart of everything we do. You will have your own self-contained flat, with a fabulous en suite bathroom. The flats are neutrally decorated for you to furnish in your own style.
Flats are designed to take into account the specific needs of older people, and have been adapted to help you with other considerations such as failing sight, hearing, or mobility. Our on-site handyman will fix grab-rails, check your appliances, and carry out other jobs such as hanging curtain rails, picture hooks, changing light bulbs or putting up shelves. This is all part of the all-inclusive service we offer.
As a resident you’ll rent your own self-contained flat, and because it’s situated within one of our lovely Abbeyfield houses, you’ll enjoy home-cooked meals, the freedom to come and go; time with new friends, or privacy when you want it. Life becomes pretty stress-free. No more trying to maintain a home and garden, no more admin and bills to sort out. And no commitment to buy, thanks to a monthly all-inclusive rental fee, which includes delicious home-cooked meals and all the bills. And of course a helping hand is ALWAYS around.
At Abbeyfield Bristol & Keynsham, our houses aren’t ‘care homes’ and we don’t offer ‘residential care’. You come and go as you please, but you’ll have a real sense of security knowing that a member of our team is always around, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When you’re starting to struggle living on your own, we offer you the next best thing.
Peace of mind
Peace of mind
Our team members are caring, fully-trained and experienced. So whether it’s to hang a picture, help unscrew a jar, or play an evening board game, there’s always someone around. For you. What’s more, your loved ones can relax too, knowing there’s an Abbeyfield team member in the house at all times, and we know you’ll feel the same.
When you join us you are joining our family. There’s a great sense of community within our Abbeyfield houses, with companionship and social interaction at the very core of our ethos. From fish and chips in Chew Magna, to promenade walks in Weston super Mare; garden centre trips and walks to the local shops, no doubt you’ll enjoy the communities outside your house too
We want everyone to be able to afford our fees and so are happy to accept housing benefit and pension credits towards your weekly rent. Our inclusive fees cover all bills (including council tax, utilities and TV licence); all meals and larder items. Our trained team members can discuss any financial concerns with your and may also be able to offer you a bursary if you need additional help.
“I’d always lived in Scotland and was happy living alone. But when I started to have problems on the stairs, my daughter suggested an Abbeyfield house near to where she lives in Bristol. I’ve never looked back.”
“Excellent food and really good to have company. Lovely, decent-sized flat with a lovely outlook and very quiet. The house is very well run and I would recommend to friends.”
“I can’t thank the staff enough. They organise trips and events for us, and work very hard on our behalf.”
