We at Abbeyfield in Durham where thrilled to learn that we would be receiving a generous financial gift from The Frank Milne Foundation to put towards paying down the principal on our mortgage.

It is through gifts such as this that allow us here at Abbeyfield to focus our ensuring that we provide the best possible living environment for the active seniors that choose to call Abbeyfield Durham home.


What a fun afternoon decorating for fall/Thanksgiving. We choose to decorate using pumpkins instead of trying to carve our pumpkins. Fred, Vivike and Marion had a great time making bows, organizing little gourds and trying to get 3 pumpkins to sit balanced on top of each other. The House parent, Sarah, had corn stalks delivered to Abbeyfield from a local farmers field. We were excited to measure the stalks at over 10′ tall!
