“Abbey View is a friendly and homely community for residents, their families, staff, and professionals. While we are looking after our residents the best we can, they also care about the staff who care for them.” – Elena Barna, Home Manager
The residents and staff of our care home in Sherborne are a family, making memories with each other every day. We are living life to our full capabilities, with positivity, empathy, compassion and respect.
Our care teams assist with all aspects of daily living for our residents, from personal care to taking regular medications, working flexibly to promote independence providing support to maintain the physical care and comfort of residents.
Abbey View nurses are available for all residents, at all times. We believe that’s the bedrock of a safe and happy home, providing nurse-led care to manage complex medical conditions, whilst ensuring all residents can stay within their familiar and comfortable home setting should their care needs change.
Our residential care service is designed to provide a comfortable and relaxed home environment where home maintenance, laundry, cooking and housekeeping are taken care of on your behalf.
Short Stay & Respite
We offer the same high quality care services enjoyed by our long-term residents on a short-term basis. Whether it’s for a short period of recovery, a respite break or simply a trial run for those looking for a permanent move, we offer a home from home where residents can live their life, their way.
Although Abbey View is not a dementia home, we are committed to supporting our residents to live meaningful and fulfilled lives, and that includes those living with the earlier stages of dementia or cognitive impairment.
End Of Life
We want people to live well with us, making the most of every single day. If that means being together until the end of life, we want our residents to die well with dignity with family around, in familiar surroundings with staff they know well.
We aim to make every day worth writing about, and our residents enjoy keeping loved ones up to date with what they’ve been up to at Abbey View. Here are some of their recent highlights.
“On behalf of our committee I write to thank you fo making cakes for our annual fundraising sale. Your efforts and contribution are hugely appreciated. This year the stall raised the amazing sum of £539.81. The SVA would not survive without continued fundraising so thank you for continuing to support our organisation.”
“A big thank you to you all for the wonderful care and support you provided to both mum and myself. As she would say, have a chocolate!”
“It would appear that there are no bounds to which the team at Abbey View will go to in order to make events like the ‘Tea at the Ritz’ celebration a memorable occasion. The work, effort and time given needs to be recognised, and congratulations to all who had a hand in the preparations.”
“You have all been so kind, caring and wonderful to my mother during her three month stay with you. It has been greatly appreciated.”
“Yesterday was just the most lovely, special day – a wonderful lunch in the garden and such delightful entertainment. A million thanks to everyone involved – I will never forget it.”
“We must thank you for the splendid summer barbeque. Everyone clearly worked so hard to arrange the outside area and all of the decorations, and most importantly, supply the food which was first class. The entertainment put the seal on a very happy occasion.”
Finding the right care home for a loved one is about trust. At Abbey View, you can be confident in the quality of care we provide.
