The Abbeyfield Kent Society has merged with The Abbeyfield Beckenham Society, acquiring three new supported homes in Greater London.
With the merger, the Society has obtained three supported homes in Shortlands Road, Bromley Road and Oakwood Avenue, in Beckenham and Bromley. In total, the homes provide ensuite rooms for up to 29 older people with shared communal areas and a house manager providing two daily meals.
Leon Steer, Chief Executive of The Abbeyfield Kent Society said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome The Abbeyfield Beckenham Society. We work hard to be one of the leading charitable care providers for older people in Kent and we are proud that what we have achieved inspires individual societies to work with us.
“Last year, The Abbeyfield Orpington Society joined us, which opened up our portfolio to the London Borough of Bromley. Now we are looking forward to working with three more homes in the vicinity and continuing towards our goal of providing care, compassion and companionship for more older people across Kent and now, Greater London too.”
Tony Power, Chairman of The Abbeyfield Beckenham Society added, “We are thrilled to be merging with The Abbeyfield Kent Society and are confident that staff and residents of the homes will benefit greatly from the support of a bigger organisation, which shares the same value and ethos.”

The Society offers a range of accommodation, including supported homes, residential homes and extra care schemes, as well as domiciliary care.
