Latest news and thanks from Abbeyfield Ferring

Donations of food

A huge thanks to children and staff at Ferring Primary School whose Mufti Day has given us lots of food donations for our oldies. Many thanks also to The Henry Pub and other local people for their generous donations.

We are truly overwhelmed here by people’s generosity and it also saves time queuing in supermarkets for our staff. Our Home Care Service is working flat out locally to make sure everyone is safe and healthy at home, so the donations are extremely welcome.

Our residential services, both Cornwell House and the Old School House are not accepting visitors currently to safeguard the health of our older residents. We have also suspended our day services but will have these back running as soon as the government issues some good news.

At both Cornwell House and the Old School House, we are helping residents keep contact with their friends and families via Skype. Lessons are going well!

If you are an older person, or the family of an older person, who has been self-isolating but is looking at a residential care home place or a small studio flatlet at the Old School House, we can talk you through the facilities and send you some photos. We had a vacancy at each of the locations and the rooms are delightful. Just give us a ring and we can talk through how we can help you arrange this.
