About Abbeyfield Durham

 "Ever have that dream where we get older and live with a small group of like-minded friends and help support each other sharing expenses?
Ya, us too!"  Friends of Abbeyfield

​​​​​​​Do you feel you are ready to downsize your living, but are not ready to leave your neighbourhood? Would you like to retain your privacy while acquiring a built-in family? info@abbeyfielddurham.ca

The Abbeyfield concept is very simple. Typically, up to fifteen residents of retirement age live in their own private bed-sitting rooms furnished with their own things. The residents share lunch and dinner, plus a self-serve breakfast from a well-stocked breakfast bar. Snacks and drinks are also available throughout the day. A House Coordinator attends to the daily running of the house, the shopping and the preparation and serving of meals. Privacy and independence are preserved yet the gentle supportive domestic atmosphere provides companionship and freedom from worries and chores. ​
​Abbeyfield Houses Society of Durham is a non-profit housing option for seniors. It offers Seniors the opportunity to have the privacy for their own living area and the support of a house coordinator who manages the building and cooks meals.
