Freedom and Sense of Security; ADVERTISEMENT FEATURE


FOR older people who need additional help and support, but are not ready for a care home, independent living within sheltered accommodation could be the answer. Here's a brief rundown of some of the options available in the North East.

Abbeyfield House Abbeyfield is different to other traditional sheltered housing providers as it can enhance your lifestyle by providing regular wholesome home-cooked meals shared among your friends in the dining room.

Its houses will offer you the feeling of security, freedom and comfort. Preservation of choice is the key to the Abbeyfield way of life. As a resident you can choose to live as independently as you want, deciding how much social involvement you wish to have in each house and the surrounding community.

Dedicated staff can offer you personalised support. As well as cooking they can remove all the little annoyances of running a household such as bills, repairs and shopping, leaving you more time and energy to enjoy the more important aspects of retired life.

Abbeyfield''s not-for-profit status means that offering value for money is important with any surplus being reinvested to improve its houses.

Before moving into one of its houses, a member of the team will meet with you so they can understand your particular requirements and you can then have a trial stay, so that you can be assured first hand that the house is right for you. If you want to find out more, contact Judith Batey on tel 07435 763014.
