Abbeyfield Oxford – an Introduction
Abbeyfield Oxford is not owned by a parent company and doesn’t have shareholders — it is simply a charity that puts the needs of older people first.
A fulfilling life is one that nourishes an individual’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs. It’s these needs that guide and shape the support and care that Abbeyfield provides.
As well as providing comfortable, safe and homely accommodation, Abbeyfield fosters an environment to stimulate the mind, to provide care and support, and to offer companionship to the residents.
The philosophy of Abbeyfield is to involve local people. Abbeyfield Oxford is run by a Board of voluntary trustees who live around the Oxford area.
There is a House Manager, Administrator and several General House Assistants who assist with the day-to-day running of the home. Many other local volunteers also provide support to the residents.
We rely greatly on the time and support given generously by our local volunteer supporters, and have close relationships with local health practices, churches, and all that Oxford offers. Most of our residents join because of their own or family ties with the Oxford area.
