Abbeyfield South Africa
Affordable and secure housing for older people within their communities
Every independent older person in South Africa deserves the comfort affordable and secure housing within their own community.
Abbeyfield South Africa (ASA) was registered as a non-profit organisation in 1985 which led to the opening of the first SA Abbeyfield home (in Cape Town) in February 1987.
By 1991 there were 8 societies affiliated to ASA, with more on the way.
To date we have 20 wonderful family-style homes that house between 6-10 residents each. Our homes combine independence with support, companionship and security at a price people can afford.
Abbeyfield South Africa’s success lies in its volunteers who establish and care for the homes and their residents. Each Abbeyfield house is owned by the local Abbeyfield Society and made up entirely of volunteers living in its vicinity.
Abbeyfield has complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 and is COVID-secure. Please click to find out more about our response to the pandemic.
