Supported Housing offers affordable, high quality living for people who want to be as independent and self-reliant as possible without the worry of maintaining their own home. We personalise our services to meet your needs so that you can enjoy freedom, security and peace of mind.
Abbeyfield House was purpose built in 1968 after land was donated to the society by Miss Violet Hamlyn, with the second building being added in the early 1980s. The houses were later linked by a glass corridor making one large home.
We provide a peaceful, friendly atmosphere where residents can remain as independent as possible and we personalise our services to meet your needs. It's a home from home with support when you need it from our professional and caring house staff and volunteers.
Abbeyfield House, Ivybridge, has 14 comfortable one-bedroom studios, mostly with en-suite, along with a one bedroom flat and a two bedroom bungalow. Completing our home are communal dining and living rooms and a large garden for you to enjoy at your leisure. Abbeyfield House is very sociable so company is always available when you want it.
We provide two healthy and delicious meals a day, which are cooked and prepared at the house. Our qualified cooks pride themselves on providing excellent food which is all freshly prepared, and where possible, using locally sourced produce.
Each house has an individual approach to catering for their residents, with menus being tailored to dietary needs and special events. But we always offer plenty of choices, including vegetarian options, and great portion sizes!
Meal time at an Abbeyfield is also important as it’s when the whole house gets together - a time to have a chat enjoying great food and great company.
