Welcome to our Website which has been set up to provide information on the services that the Societies who are part of Abbeyfield movement in Scotland have to offer and gives details of how care is provided, regulated and funded in Scotland.
Abbeyfield houses help elderly people to live independently at modest prices. Abbeyfield houses are run by volunteers and is a "not for profit" organisation.
There are a number of significant differences between the regulation and financing of care in Scotland and the rest of the U.K. and details of these are covered in this website.
A number of our Societies provide full 24 hour care, some nursing care also while many provide Very Sheltered Housing accommodation with services geared to the needs of their individual residents. Details are shown in the information pages about each Society and on their own individual websites where they have been set up.
