Comfortable, caring and secure, at Abbey Lea we offer long-term personal-centred care for the over 65’s. We specialise in supporting those with dementia related illnesses and old age. Should they need any nursing care, we also have the support of the local team of District Nurses who will visit our residents upon referral from a GP. Two night care assistants are awake throughout the night, with a senior member of staff ‘on call’ in case of concerns or an emergency.

The home accommodates 23 residents in pleasantly decorated rooms and has two television lounges, one of which has the loop system fitted, and a separate light dining room. You’ll find the original sweeping grand staircase in the entrance hall, as well as hand painted wall murals photo montages adorn the walls, showing trips of bowling, fancy dress and summer fairs enjoyed by all. Memory boards outside bedrooms help residents with their orientation. and we also have a lift to assist anyone who finds stairs tricky.
