Companionship at Christmas

Do you know someone who will be alone at Christmas?

Abbeyfield’s Companionship at Christmas scheme provides free festive lunches and overnight stays to older people who would otherwise be alone during the Christmas period.

For the third year running, Abbeyfield is inviting these people to spend time at an Abbeyfield house or care home for a free festive dinner or even an overnight stay – giving older people an alternative to spending the period alone throughout the holidays (24th December – 4th January).

The only requirements are that you are:

  • Over 55
  • Alone over Christmas
  • Currently living independently

In Halifax, the scheme will be running at Ing Royd, which is in Savile Park, Halifax. (Click here to view on a map.)

If you are alone this Christmas or know someone who might be you can contact Abbeyfield on 0845 052 3553.
