Ryde Society

The Abbeyfield Ryde Society is a charity that provides 'home from home' accommodation for older people on a not-for-profit basis.

We are supported by a large group of volunteers who befriend our residents with weekly visits and various activities. Our aim is to provide a warm and welcoming home, and to enable our residents to live happy and stress-free lives.

Both houses are located in Queens Road in Ryde, providing comfortable accommodation which is maintained to a high standard.

Founded in 1968 when the house was opened by Earl Mountbatten the then Governor of the Isle of Wight. It was as recent as 2012 when the last founder-member retired.

Our two homes each have live-in housekeepers which offer our residents a little extra security, although we do have a 24hr emergency call system.

Every effort is made to keep our houses as homely as possible and we nurture an atmosphere of caring and friendship in all our activities. Every opportunity is taken to make each day a little different, be it celebrating the Chinese New Year or going on a shopping trip with lunch out.

All residents receive a visit from a House Committee Member each week so that any problems can be addressed quickly but mainly to promote friendship and give support. Every effort is made to ensure that our residents live in a warm, caring and supportive atmosphere.

The house has eight bedsit style rooms, each with a small kitchen area and en-suite shower room. There is a communal lounge and dining room, as well as a peaceful garden where you can relax and take in the fresh air.

Meal times are an important part of the day where the whole house comes together. We provide two healthy and delicious meals each day, which are cooked and prepared within the home.
