ABBEYFIELD POLONIA HOUSE
The Polonia Abbeyfield House will be a home for up to 15 retirees of Polish background. The residents will be part of a big family bonded by Polish language and culture. The home will provide companionship for those no longer wishing to live on their own but who are physically active and wanting life on their own terms.
Residents will no longer have the worry of managing and maintaining a household nor will they need to plan, shop for and prepare their own meals. Two main meals per day will be prepared and served on the premises by a member of staff. The menu will be selected to bring back memories of home. Residents will be able to share their meals together in the dining room. Breakfast will be provided buffet style. Cleaning of all communal areas will be the responsibility of the Abbeyfield staff and high standards of cleanliness will be maintained at all times.
Comfort and Privacy
The house will be located in an area close to shops and local amenities and surrounded by greenery so that residents will be able to enjoy the outdoors and if desired, practice their gardening skills.
Each resident will have his own private living area and ensuite bathroom which he/she will be able to furnish at will to give it the feeling of “home”. There will be access to communal areas including the gardens.
Abbeyfield Polonia House is a not for profit society. Rent will be set at an affordable rate and will include board and lodging, food, power, house maintenance and overhead costs. The monthly charges will be more reasonable than those of most “for profit” homes.
