Abbeyfield is a charity which exists to enhance the quality of life for older people. Since 1956 we’ve been providing accommodation, care and support to enable everyone to live a fulfilling and rewarding later life. We give priority to the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of older people to help reduce loneliness and feelings of insecurity.
Our homes are run by dedicated staff, and supported by volunteers. Donations and support are given from individuals, trusts, companies and the local communities in which we work to enable us to create and run innovative projects and services.
We were delighted to be part of the Imagine project, which puts older people at the heart of the community, where creativity and the arts are explored as integral parts of life in care homes. This can only enrich the lives of our residents, and in turn foster strong bonds between them, their carers and the wider community.
