Picture the 'op-shop' down the road with its dedicated volunteers lovingly raising funds to support the good works.
Picture the community member who both shops and donates there because they know where their dollar goes.
That's Abbeyfield. It's not just an aged care facility - it's a community!
The first facility was home to 11 residents and opened in 1989 to great community celebration. Recently extended in 2011, it is now home to include high care up to 23 residents, plus a small retirement village of 13 units.
Abbeyfield has never been content to be ordinary or mediocre. From the old photos of residents in the dining room, to the games, bowls, bingo, community singalongs and music sessions. This is a home in the true sense of the word.
