 About Us

The Abbeyfield Uxbridge Society is part of a national charity that provides secure,supported accomodation for older people who are reasonably fit, but who no longer want to live alone.

For over 50 years the Abbeyfield Society has provided supported retirement accomodation for older people. It has dedicated itself to making the lives of older people easier and more fulfulling. Abbeyfield residents want to be independent and value their privacy, but shed the burdens of cooking and housekeeping. They want to feel secure and , above all, they want companionship.

Abbeyfield is a unique partnership of residents, salaried staff and a team of volunteers, who provide that precious extra companionship.

The Abbeyfield Uxbridge Society was formed in 1974 by local volunteers. Our first supported house was opened in Uxbridge, in 1976, with 6 residents. Then, in 1983,we opened 3 new purpose built houses in Hayes, for a total of 30 people and the original site in Uxbridge was closed.

Following extensive refurbishment and upgrading, starting in 2007, the seperate houses have now been combined into one fully accessible community of residents, all under one roof, with greatly improved communal areas, and superior modern facilities to enhance their daily living.
