SELECTION CRITERIA
Abbeyfield House provides a “home within a home” for the lonely or isolated elderly man or woman who, though relatively fit for his or her years, no longer wishes to live alone.

  • Applicants who are mentally alert, can manage daily living tasks and can function socially are suitable candidates for residency.
  • Prime considerations for residency are: the level of health, extent of loneliness, and the desire to live in a private, yet social, setting.
  • Abbeyfield House is NOT a health care facility.
