Garrad House

2nd of February 2005

Garrad House, Rockliffe Avenue, Kings Langley is part of the Abbeyfield Society, a national charity providing housing and various types of care throughout the country.
It is a homely place where a small group of up to 10 people of retirement age live together, with help from staff and volunteers. Residents have their own room with en suite facilities. Residents may bring their own furniture and will be consulted about the dŽcor; there are TV and telephone points in all rooms. There is a lift to the first floor. Life in an Abbeyfield house is an active life, with a large measure of independence. Residents clean their own rooms and do their own laundry, but may employ help with this if they so wish.
Residents get up when they like and get their own breakfast; cereals etc are provided by the Housekeeper. It is easy to make hot drinks at any time of day and most residents provide a small fridge in the room for milk and fresh fruit etc. Residents meet together at meal times; food at Garrad House is home cooking, prepared by the staff on the premises. Occasional outings and entertainment are arranged. There is also a garden for walking and exercise. Frequent visits from friends and families are welcome at any convenient time.
Garrad House does not employ care staff, but residents may buy in help with bathing; there is a specially equipped bathroom available. There is always someone “on call” at night but Garrad House does not provide 24 hour staff cover.
The charges are very reasonable because Garrad House is a non-profit making charity run by a committee of local volunteers. There are no hidden extras such as heating and electricity bills.
There are currently two rooms available for occupancy. If you would like more information and/or would like to arrange a tour of the premises, please telephone 01923 270791.
