Abbeyfield Canada

Affordable accommodation and companionship for older people within their own local community

Abbeyfield Canada

Abbeyfield Canada's core mission is to provide affordable accommodation and companionship for older people within their own local community.

Our 21 homes can be found in residential areas throughout Canada and are typically renovated to support a small group of residents to live together with a house manager. Rooms are private, and housekeeping and meals are provided by staff in the communal living spaces.

The Abbeyfield concept is as simple as it is unique: create a warm, family-style, volunteer-run and community-based house that offers seniors an easy-going balance between privacy and companionship, security and independence. Abbeyfield Canada is a proven success, a community-based housing alternative that enables healthy seniors to live independently and in place in a non-institutional setting — happily and safely.

Our houses and homes are located throughout Canada in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan.
