When it comes to our care at Abbeyfield Bognor Regis, the Very Sheltered home provides our residents with the highest amount of independence and flexibility in care provisions.  With accommodation within this home, the residents can enjoy a very full life with socialising, entertaining and running their own home. They can do this with the underlying assurance that our staff are on hand to provide them with the assistance and care they may need.

The Very Sheltered Home

This House offers accommodation (bed/sitting room and full bathroom en-suite) for residents who still have mobility and the ability to care for themselves. The kitchen staff prepare a home cooked lunch and evening meal which are served in the communal dining room where residents meet together and share companionship. Breakfast and incidental snacks are prepared by residents in their own rooms enabling them to entertain friends if they so wish.

Helping Residents Feel at Home

At Abbeyfield Bognor Regis, we have the ultimate goal of ensuring our residents feel safe, secure and at home while staying in one of our Very Sheltered accommodation units. For this reason, all residents within this home will be able to bring their own furniture and design the layout of the rooms themselves. This will help them to readjust to living in this new space and help them to feel comfortable.

Being able to have your own suite, with bathroom, lounge, bedroom and basic cooking facilities, our residents here will enjoy full privacy and will lead quite full and independent lives. They can do this all under the reassurance that there will be a member of staff there to help them should they ever need care for any reason. The atmosphere within the Very Sheltered home ensures that the residents will make many friends and will find companionship in both fellow residents and care staff.
