'Making time for older people'


Abbeyfield Chester

Abbeyfield Chester Society has been in Chester since 1963. We offer a choice of two supported homes, both with a welcoming, friendly atmosphere.

Our residents enjoy high standards of accommodation, companionship and a support service designed to promote independence. They are all treated with dignity and respect.

Prospective residents are invited to have a free trial period of three days in the house of their choice. This will enable them to experience life with us and to meet staff, residents and volunteers prior to making a final decision.

We are a Registered Charity and our Houses offer Independent living facilities with two home cooked meals provided every day a live in House Manager/Relief Housekeeper for nightly sleep ins and a button entry system for extra security.

"Richard Carr-Gomm, Founder"

"If only we could have a house in every street to which everyone could be treated the same and share equally the kindness of the community around them"

"Anything that we can do to improve the lives of elderly people is welcome so far as I am concerned."
