Independent Senior Living with Support
Even when you are living independently, there may be times when a little extra support would be very welcome.
If you are recovering from an operation, or would appreciate a little extra help, our HomeCare Finder service, an associated resource for domiciliary care, can help.
We can also welcome you into either the Abbey in Wiltshire or the Manor in Hampshire, where our care team will look after you until you can get back on your feet and return home.
Independent Living Services: We’ve got it covered
The service charge for supported living at the Abbey or Manor is more comprehensive than most other providers, with most jobs and costs associated with running and maintaining your home all covered.
The service charge includes:
- Daily four-course lunch with the other residents
- Central heating all year round when colder weather takes hold and temperatures fall below 18 degrees
- External maintenance, including window cleaning
- Landscaping and maintenance of our stunning grounds and parklands
- Complimentary private lawn mowing
- Regular domestic support and refuse collection
- Complimentary handyman service for small tasks
- Water rates, buildings insurance for your property and communal areas
- Yearly boiler servicing and professional gutter clearance
- External maintenance and redecoration of communal facilities
- Provision and maintenance or replacement of cookers, fridges and freezers if required
- Periodic testing and servicing of your emergency call system and smoke alarms
- Resident recycling bins
- Serviced communal lifts
- Complimentary parking with garages available by separate arrangement
- WiFi in shared areas
- Fully serviced guest apartments at advantageous prices
- Communal, well equipped resident laundry rooms
The grounds are yours to enjoy in every season and massively important to our independent living residents and the families who love to visit. You even have complimentary fishing rights on the banks of our stretch of the Hampshire Avon.
There's always plenty to do, when you want to. Themed lunches, theatre visits, specialist talks, days out to the beach or local gardens, bridge evenings - the list is constantly updated.
We can act as your concierge, arrange for papers to be delivered, sort a driver for an outing or collect your prescriptions. You can make the most of our on-site hairdressing salons and, at Amesbury Abbey the on-site physiotherapy practice and residents' library.
Supported living at the Abbey or Manor also means we have the chance to forge friendships with our residents.
Catching up daily with staff popping in for a quick chat on the doorstep or for half an hour over coffee and cake is a pleasure, but it also has an important purpose. By getting to know every resident we can quickly spot if they're under the weather, feeling low, have family news or are off on holiday and may want us to keep an eye on their home.
