Our staff and services
The house is managed by Tricia Morrison and her Deputy, both of whom are qualified nurses and experienced carers. Other staff include a Registered Mental Nurse, senior and junior carers, activities support worker, cook and domestic staff. A hairdresser calls once a week and a dentist, optician and chiropodist can be called when required. Various activities are on offer on a daily basis and outings and entertainment are arranged by our full-time Activities Team for those who wish to take part.
Meals at Abbeyfield
We realise that meal times are an important part of daily routine and we have formal dining arrangement in place to accomodate this. Residents who wish to eat alone can of course be accomodated.
Three full meals per day are provided with snacks and drinks available throughout the day and night. Our experienced cook has an understanding of our residents' needs and spends time with them to establish their preferences. Every effort is made to accomodate these in addition to any special dietary needs.
Guests may be invited for coffee or a meal and a private room can be provided for this purpose.
Outings are a major feature of life at Abbeyfield and if no suitable eating place can be found the renowned 'Abbeyfield Picnic' comes into it's own!
During the summer months a Barbecue with entertainment is held which is always thoroughly enjoyed by all. The residents also celebrate the local Marymass Festival.
Birthdays are normally celebrated with family and friends along with the other residents and staff, the size of the function entirely being of the resident's choosing.
When Christmas comes along we really get into the part mood, with an evening of fun and music to which friends and family may be invited.
