    Life at Abbeyvale

    Situated in a close and familiar community with easy access to the main high street and the shops and amenities this offers. Welfare Park is nearby and residents take regular excursions to the outdoor space, which hosts bowls, football and cricket matches.

    We offer 30 large and spacious ensuite bedrooms all decorated and furnished to a high standard with residents encouraged to personalise the rooms to make them their home.

    There is a secure garden at the back of the home which is enthusiastically tended, and a popular outdoor space with plenty of opportunity for green thumbed residents.

  • Lifestyle


    Our residents will be able to keep active and continue their individual interests as they would at home. Specialist Lifestyle Support workers are located within each home, planning in advance a full programme of engaging events and projects to promote social interaction while also targeting mental and physical stimulation for people living with us.

    Our homes benefit from health and beauty treatments, baking, our dedicated male orientated “Men’s Sheds”, trips and many more. We try to engage with our local community as much as possible and have an open door policy for family and friends.

  • Meals


    We recognise that mealtimes are a focal part of any day. Nutritional well-being is vital to maintaining a healthy mind and body. Our regularly reviewed menus with resident input, provide a well-balanced nutritious choice of food which also caters for people who require special diets. There is an alternative menu available just in case people would like a change. Drinks, snacks and nibbles including fruit are available through the day and the night.

    We also welcome residents who like to bake, cook or help themselves when they would like.  We can also cater for parties and celebrations for the people who live in our homes and their families and friends.
