1. Action Plan
AbbeyCare is the trading name of Weston-super-Mare Free Church Housing Association which has three homes in the town. It is a non-profit making Christian organisation, established over fifty years ago and today is still run by a voluntary Management committee supported by a Senior Manager and also a Care Manager in each home. We take great pride in offering the highest standards of accommodation and facilities; indeed the level of care we give to every one of our residents is exactly what we would want our own loved ones to receive, so you will find that our homes are run very much along the lines of a comfortable caring family home, where each resident is a valued member of a small community. Our registration classification is for age 65 years or over.
