Supported Sheltered Houses
An Abbeyfield House allows our residents to maintain as independent a lifestyle as possible whilst having the reassurance of a supportive network of people close at hand. This network includes paid staff, night duty staff in all houses, volunteers on the House Committee and friends.
- All single rooms or one bedroom flats have en-suite facilities with either bath or shower
- Residents recreate a home from home by bringing some of their own furniture.
- Communal dining/living rooms and gardens are maintained where residents can meet as and when they wish
- Three meals a day are included, with lunch and a tea or supper served in the dining room and supplies provided for breakfast, which residents take in their own rooms at a time to suit themselves
The cost of living at an Abbeyfield House is a welcome surprise. Costs, often supported by housing benefits or similar entitlements due to residents, are considerably lower than you might imagine, and cover all expenses including food and utility bills. Our fees also cover staff salaries, house maintenance and council tax, and currently range from £293 to £334 per week inclusive. Rental cost for the new house in Redland range from £350 per week for studio flats and from £400 per week for one bedroom flats.
Fees can be met by self funding or from within what anyone in receipt of benefits can receive, topped up with state pension, but leaving sufficient cash available for day to day living.
Each house has a resident member of the housekeeping team on site, and on call, overnight, helping to provide a reassuring and secure environment for all our residents.
