Abbeyfield Chichester is a small non-profit making company providing residential assisted-living for older people in this glorious cathedral city. We also offer a help at home service.


Our very popular At Home service is for Chichester’s older community who prefer to stay in their own home but who are in need now of some extra help and companionship. Several At Home clients, after a time, have opted to become a resident at either ‘Oakshade’ or ‘Westgate’, our 2 properties.

Our charity is run by a Board of Trustees, local professional people, all of whom give their time voluntarily to ensure the highest standards of compassionate care for our residents and clients. They support a devoted team of managers and staff most of whom have been with us for many years. Our dedicated General Manager is inspirational in her approach to our clients’ happiness.


Although an entirely independent organisation set up 55 years ago, we are affiliated to the highly respected national Abbeyfield group which prides itself in providing excellent person-centred care at affordable prices.
