Accommodation and care in later life

Living at home can become harder as you get older, but choosing to move into assisted living accommodation doesn’t have to mean losing your independence. In fact, many of our residents tell us it feels like a new beginning.

We provide care and support for older people

At Abbeyfield we believe older people deserve time and respect. It’s our mission to provide the best service of care and housing for all our residents, and to be a champion for older people. We have been a charitable housing organisation for nearly 50 years. Throughout this time our residents are always at the heart of what we do and the services we provide.

Housing and care homes for older people

We offer Very Sheltered Housing and Extra Care in both Braintree and Felsted which provide a great degree of comfort and support to our residents. 

Very Sheltered Housing means three meals a day, laundry and accommodation all provided within the service charge and communal dining room and lounge.

We also provide Extra Care Flats which are for independent living, this means residents have their own front door with living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.  In this type of  scheme residents have a cooked two course mid day meal in the communal lounge and a program of activities is provided almost every day.  An essential element of Extra Care is the provision of onsite Care Services both to fulfill care packages and also to provide an emergency 24 hour care and support back up.

We believe that choosing Abbeyfield is a good move

Every one of our residents is special and deserves the very best level of service, and we’re committed to making their lives as happy as possible. Through our ethos of care and our remarkable staff we aim to enhance later life for all residents that live at an Abbeyfield home.

Our beliefs

We believe that a fulfilling life is one that nourishes an individual’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs; that everybody has an intrinsic value and worth and should be supported to live in dignity and with respect.

We understand how important freedom and independence are but we’re always there for reassurance and extra help if required.
