Abbeyfield West Sussex sheltered houses and care homes are run by local staff and volunteers who genuinely care, and share our aim to help older people enjoy a full and purposeful life in the community. We understand how important freedom and independence are, but we are always there for reassurance and extra help if required.


The two Abbeyfield Society houses in Chichester, one in Westgate and the other in Market Avenue, offer high-standard accommodation and a safe, secure and homely environment for 17 active elderly residents.


Our home is split into two houses, Residential Care and Sheltered. Here residents can enjoy privacy and lead full and independent lives with the knowledge that there is an experienced member of staff to hand when they need them.

Our mission:
“To enhance the quality of life for older people"

Choosing the appropriate care option for yourself or for a family member or friend is a difficult decision. Any move is stressful, and moving a loved one into an assisted living home or other elderly care facility often involves leaving a place they called home for many years.

We understand everyone is different and can have very different requirements, depending on their individual circumstances. We've developed a choice of accommodation to suit a whole range of needs and preferences. Of course, choosing what's best for you or a loved one can feel daunting, so we're also on hand to offer our advice and experience if you need it. Our flexibility gives you lots of options to carry on living life as you want to.

We're a charitable organisation with one mission: to enhance the quality of life for older people and make their lives easier and more fulfilling.

We've been improving the lives of older people with our unique brand of support and care since 1956. It's the remarkable success story built on the dream of one man.

He bought a small house in Bermondsey, South London, and invited two local residents who'd been living alone, to join him. The first Abbeyfield house was born
