We love hearing all about our resident’s lives, and what made them choose Abbeyfield. Jane came to live in our Hove house from Africa, to be closer to her family. In her words, living in an Abbeyfield house is ‘the best of both worlds’.
“I came to live in Brighton and Hove from Africa as my son and his family lived in Hove. I didn’t know anyone in the U.K. apart from my family so I wanted to live somewhere where I could be independent but also where there would be other people to socialise with, and Abbeyfield turned out to be the ideal place.
Another plus for me here is that it is only a five-minute walk to the seafront and town, also there is plenty of bus stops to various places around close by as well.
I wanted to live somewhere where I could be independent but also where there would be other people to socialise with, and Abbeyfield turned out to be the ideal place.
I have a very nice flat overlooking the garden from which I can come and go as I please. The garden is also very pleasant to sit out in when the weather is suitable.
All the food is provided for our meals, with a delicious cooked lunch in the dining room every day. There is a comfortable lounge with a television, and a conservatory opening onto the garden.
The staff are very friendly and helpful as are all the people who live here. It is definitely the best of both worlds; if like me you want independence but also people around to be sociable with.”
Easing loneliness and isolation
We’ve also had some lovely new tenants join us at Beamsley House in Eastbourne recently. 2020 has been tough for everyone, so we asked what they are looking forward to about life at Abbeyfield.
“Moving into Beamsley House will give me a new lease of life to make friends and not feel lonely.”
“I moved in last month and feel very happy to be around people, and not feel isolated.”
“After visiting the house, I saw how clean and spacious it is, and the people were friendly. On the day I moved in everyone made me feel welcome, I think that I won’t feel lonely.”
We love having you with us!
