"Years ago, my mother had an invite for lunch at Abbeyfield St Peters.  She was impressed by the friendliness and hominess of the facility.  My mother loved her own home and garden and lived alone for another 5 years.  She was on the Abbeyfield wait list, but when called, she'd proudly say: I'm doing just fine, thankyou.  Still, it was a real comfort just knowing she had a great option in the future.  That day arrived, and she joyfully looked forward to the big move.  The first few months were a bit of an adjustment, but settling in was not too hard, nor too long, and the food -- always first rate!"  Geoff E.

"It's amazing what moving into an Abbeyfield House can do!  Take me for example.  I moved from a high-priced manor in the "boonies" to this Abbeyfield House St Peters in Victoria, BC.  The next thing I knew I was involved writing new Limericks to add to my collection of poetry that was gathering dust."  George Roberts

"The very first-time day Jake visited Abbeyfield he truly felt he had finally found where he belonged. Staff were so warm and welcoming. Dad felt that he was home!! The staff and residents he met and came to know, helped him feel like part of a family.  The food was exceptional and cooked on site. There are only 12 residents including himself and this was huge for dad. As his daughters, we were welcome at anytime and felt it was like coming home to not only our dad but his extended family as well.  A very warm, friendly, and inviting atmosphere. THANK YOU, ABBEYFIELD!!  Forever grateful, forever in our hearts."

"Hi everyone on the Abbeyfield Board and volunteers, thanks so much for all you have done for my Mom and for the residents of Abbeyfield. We were so blessed that she died in her little home and I was by her side. She did not want to move to other residential care and we were not looking forward to that for sure. She died in her own bed and we are so thankful.  Ed and I have been honoured to be volunteers for Abbeyfield for 4yrs and we had so many good times there with Mom and all the staff, residents and volunteers."  Cathy
