About Us

"The Amesbury Abbey Group has dedicated over 40 years to the care of the elderly and has been doing so with remarkable success since 1972. The group was founded by Mary Cornelius-Reid A.M. M.B.E, who realised when she was Night Sister at Winchester Hospital, that there was a tremendous shortage of high quality nursing homes giving the sort of personal service and extra-special tender loving care to the elderly people who needed it most.

For someone thinking about moving to any one of the Amesbury Abbey Group’s Nursing Homes or Retirement Housing schemes, you can rest assured that you will be exceptionally well taken care of, for there is little the family leave to chance."
