Abbeyfield High River, AB
Abbeyfield is a registered charity which builds non-profit housing for seniors. An Abbeyfield House provides a much needed housing choice for seniors who no longer wish to live in their own home and yet do not need the services of a home for the aged or a nursing home. Abbeyfield is a very viable and realistic option to the perceived step from family home to nursing home.
Abbeyfield offers a warm, family-style House and a balance between privacy and companionship, security and independence, combined with the special caring element provided by dedicated volunteers and the consistency of a House Manager and Alternate Manager.
Age and loneliness are the prime considerations for residency, together with level of desire to share in a family-style atmosphere.
Each House creates a sense of belonging that is truly preventative medicine. With a history of five decades, Abbeyfield International experience indicates that most Abbeyfield Residents gain a new lease on life. They stay more fit and are more likely to live out their natural life cycles without becoming debilitated.
