Making time for older people and helping them stay independent for longer


Abbeyfield Ripon residents Our supported living accommodation offers a family atmosphere with affordable, high quality living for people who want to be as independent and self-reliant as possible without the worry of maintaining their own home or cooking meals.

We have 8 studio apartments and 2 one-bedroomed flats – all with en-suite facilities. All apartments/flats are unfurnished allowing you the convenience and comfort of having your own things around you. A private garden with a conservatory also means you can sit out whatever the weather.

We personalise our services to meet your needs so that you can enjoy security, peace of mind and freedom from chores. Our aim is to help you enjoy life and stay independent for longer.

We have regular monthly activities that include games afternoons, quizzes and trips out. Residents also organise their own games and music evenings.

Whenever there is a reason to celebrate we do it in style, and our local Mayor is always happy to come and help us celebrate (especially as the "food is always so good!")

We also have special lunches from time to time such as St Georges Day, Burns 'lunches', and not forgetting of course, Christmas lunches, when the dining room is dressed up by the staff and volunteers to create a wonderful atmosphere.

What's on the menu

We are very proud of the food we offer residents - we feel it sets us apart and offers our residents something a little bit different.

All food is freshly cooked on the premises, using locally sourced quality food, by caring, dedicated and helpful staff. There is a 4 week turnaround of menus, which adds variety and all meals are both nutritious and delicious!

Whilst breakfast is not provided, we offer daily milk and bread so that it is always fresh for residents and waste and expense is reduced for residents. Residents then have the choice of what to have for breakfast and when they want to eat it.


This house is managed by Abbeyfield Ripon & District Society Ltd.

Happy Easter to Ripon from Abbeyfield.

We have been making cards, decorating Simnel cakes for Mother’s Day, making baskets of chocolate eggs to decorate an Easter Egg tree for Sunday. May has made an Easter Garden for our dining room.

We have been lucky to have each other in Abbeyfield. Residents have been able to enjoy each other’s company at home cooked lunches and teas each day. They are also able to enjoy the Spring flowers in our garden and Abbeyfield House is in the perfect spot for a walk to Spa Gardens for exercise. 

Things are starting to open up but we are remaining cautious. Thank you to residents, their families, staff and trustees for continuing to take steps to protect each other until we can have more confidence in being able to meet in person.

Happy Easter and let's look forward to brighter times.
