"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

"I echo Cathy's comments about how wonderful it was that Sheila had Abbeyfield House as her home for more than three years. She often told us how much she enjoyed the House, the staff and her fellow residents."

"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

"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.
