Abbeyfield Ottawa provides family-style accommodation for up to 10 independent seniors. Life at Abbeyfield Ottawa preserves privacy and independence, yet its supportive atmosphere provides companionship and freedom from worries and chores.

Primarily intended as a permanent home for seniors, Abbeyfield has reviewed how it can best serve the continuum of continuing care in Ottawa. While Abbeyfield Ottawa has no medical staff, support from the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC), both personal and homemaking, may allow frail seniors to stay here, depending on their condition. The staff at Abbeyfield Ottawa provide nutritious meals, security, and stability, and maintain a comfortable and harmonious atmosphere. The House is wheelchair and walker accessible, with an elevator/lift, handrails in the hallways, and grab rails in each private bathroom.
