The Abbeyfield Tunbridge Wells Society

The Society

The Abbeyfield Tunbridge Wells Society is situated in a beautiful Edwardian house in Cadogan Gardens at the heart of the town with easy level access to all local amenities.

Abbeyfield is based on the vision of Richard Carr-Gomm who in 1956 set out to eradicate the loneliness and neglect of older people he visited as a home-help in South London. The Abbeyfield Tunbridge Wells Society was formed in 1961 and is an associated member of the national Abbeyfield Society.

We offer affordable high quality communal living for people who want to be as independent and self-reliant as possible without the worry of maintaining their own home. We currently have 16 ensuite unfurnished rooms and those rooms on the upper floors are accessed via a lift. Whilst our rooms are unfurnished, we have built smart units in each room to accommodate a fridge provided by us, and our residentsí breakfast items. The dining room, lounge/TV Room, games room and conservatory are all at ground floor level. The terraced rear garden is accessed through the conservatory and provides a popular calm environment.

Nutritious home cooked lunches and high teas are prepared by our team of day staff and enjoyed by all residents in the dining room. We also provide morning coffee and afternoon tea in the conservatory and friends and relatives are always welcome to join us for a meal. Our dedicated team will take care of personal laundry and all resident rooms are cleaned weekly.

A range of optional social activities are offered including coffee mornings, scrabble, theatre outings and various other in-house events during the year. WiFi and a Lifeline support system are provided, and Sky is optional.
