David Gresham House

Set in its own attractive landscaped grounds and within walking distance of local shops and train station, David Gresham House offers a relaxed but secure homely environment. We provide the appropriate individually assessed levels of care essential to uphold the privacy, independence and dignity of every one of our Residents.

We offer a daily programme of activities, both within David Gresham House and outside.

Residents are encouraged to take part in these to help maintain mental alertness, self-esteem and social interaction with others.

Our Registered Statement

The Society aims to provide its Residents with a secure, relaxed and homely environment in which their 24 hour per day care, well-being and comfort are of prime importance.

It is the Society’s aim that its Residents should live as full and active life as their health will allow, enjoying the respect of those who support them, with their dignity preserved and their privacy ensured. It is our belief that Residents living in an elderly care setting have the same rights as any other individual member of society. Living in an Abbeyfield home should afford feelings of safety, security and companionship, without losing the right of individual freedom.

Current Availability


We currently have 3 independent living flats to rent. Residents must be able to walk up two flights of stairs if the lift is being serviced or out of action. This accommodation can be shared with a partner/spouse.

Residential rooms

We currently have a few residential rooms to rent giving 24-hour supervised care. We are not a Dementia care or Nursing Home.

No more loneliness

At David Gresham House, we are acutely aware of our Residents’ need for social contact, chatter and laughter. We strive to banish the loneliness felt by many older people living on their own and we are proud to offer our Residents an active, sociable living environment.

Our Activity Coordinator makes sure that there’s always something going on, whilst in warmer weather we organise days out shopping and visiting local places of interest and even the occasional picnic in the garden.

Our staff and volunteers are on hand to help out and to ensure that every event is an enjoyable and rewarding occasion.

Our Activities Coordinator will publish a list of varied daily activities each month for the Residents.
