Our community opened in December 2002. Abbeyfield is a non-profit housing option for seniors. Abbeyfield offers seniors the opportunity
to have the privacy of their own living area and the support of a house coordinator who manages the building and cooks meals.
Abbeyfield offers a warm, family-style House and a balance between privacy and companionship, security and independence, combined with the special caring element provided by dedicated volunteers and the consistency of a single House manager.
Age and loneliness are the prime considerations for residency, together with level of health and compatibility with other residents.
Abbeyfield Durham is a non profit charitable organization, managed by local volunteers through a Board of Directors. We are part of a group of Abbeyfield Houses Societies around the world. We are a member of Abbeyfield Canada and Abbeyfield International.
