About Abbeyfield

At Abbeyfield Scotland we provide safe, secure quality accommodation where older people can maintain their independence but benefit from a little help and enjoy companionship and company – when they want it.

Our residents and their families place a high value on what an Abbeyfield house offers – prestigious locations, shared spaces for dining and entertaining, good food and an active social life.


We are registered:

  • as a social landlord with The Scottish Housing Regulator
  • as  a charity with the Office of the Scottish Charities Regulator
  • with the Care Inspectorate for the provision of housing support services

All of these organisations set high standards which we have to meet.

Like other registered social landlords, we have members who hold a £1 share and a voluntary Board elected from among the members. The Board is responsible for directing the overall business of the organisation.
