About Abbeyfield Worthing Society
Learn more about us and our homes in Worthing
The Abbeyfield Worthing Society was established in 1961 because Otho Prior-Palmer, a local resident and former MP, felt more should be done locally for older people. His thoughts and ideas were compatible with the Abbeyfield ethos and so the Society became a member of the Abbeyfield movement.
Supported by a group of local residents, who also believed in these values, with a desire to assist in providing active older people with a practical alternative to living on their own, the sheltered accommodation provided at that time, was the forerunner of what we see today.
Our houses offer people the opportunity to maintain their own lifestyle whilst benefiting from an inclusive and supportive living environment. Both our houses are run by local staff and volunteers who genuinely care, and share our aim to assist older people to enjoy life to the full, along with companionship and community.
