Welcome to our house

Abbeyfield House is a small purpose-built residential care home which opened in July 1996.

Residents say there is a family-feel at Abbeyfield House. We value our residents and treat them with dignity and respect. Our highly-trained, dedicated and friendly staff take the time to get to know residents so we can provide person-centred care.

Who comes to live at Abbeyfield House?

We provide a home for people over the age of 65 who may need help with daily living, such as getting dressed or personal care. Others chose to come here because they are lonely or isolated and would like the companionship provided by living in a small home, or they may have found that managing their own home has become a challenge.

We offer a one month trial period so you can make sure ‘this is the place for me’. This gives us the time to get to know you and to identify your needs and preferred way of living.

We also provide respite care for those who need a temporary stay.

About the home

The home has 28 single bedrooms over three floors, each has its own en-suite facilities. There is a lift to each floor and handrails are installed throughout the building.

The rooms are part-furnished, allowing you to bring your own personal items and furniture to make it feel like home. Each bedroom has a TV and telephone point, together with a call system that residents can use to contact staff at any time.

You can spend time in our bright lounges or in the wonderful garden, with heated gazebo, enjoying the peace and quiet or getting to know other residents.

We're in a great location, less than one mile from Reading town centre in a quiet conservation area between Bath Road and Tilehurst Road. We are just 15 minutes away from Junction 11 of the M4.

I am impressed by the kindness, empathy and patience shown by the staff. They go ‘above and beyond’ the norm in caring for my mother.

Relative of a resident

My mother has lived here for over seven years. I treasure the fact that Abbeyfield has enabled us to become mother and daughter again, instead of patient and carer.

Relative of a resident

As soon as we all visited Abbeyfield...Mum decided this was the one for her.
