Our residents are generally people over 55 years of age who can no longer afford, or wish to rent a home and prefer assisted, independent living. Some of our Abbeyfield houses can also accommodate younger adults with mild intellectual disabilities who wish to share with others.
An Abbeyfield House is a group house in which residents live independently within a shared supportive environment. Our residents ‘come and go’ as they please, socialise with other residents as much as desired, enjoy the support of a housekeeper and remain engaged with the community. Each house has 10 bedrooms with communal lounge, dining and laundry areas.
Abbeyfield housing is based on an ‘assisted independent living’ philosophy and residential concept where:
• all residents enjoy individual private suites, comprising bedroom and ensuite
• residents share a comfortable lounge room, dining room, garden, and laundry
• nutritious meals are cooked onsite by the housekeeper
• maintenance and house costs are covered by Abbeyfield Australia
