We are a home that offers en-suite rooms or casitas for rent to active independent elderly people. We currently have no vacancies, please contact us for more details. Our contact information is shown on our ‘Comments’ page.
Anyone over retirement age (65 Years) is eligible to be considered.
We have high standards of safety, security and service. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the property.
A nutritious evening dinner is prepared by the House Manager. The ingredients for a buffet style breakfast for self-help are also provided. Residents are on their own for lunch with fixings available.
While the staff run the home on a day to day basis, a voluntary committee is responsible for the well being of our residents and overseeing the home.
Before moving in, you will be asked to visit and look around the home. We offer a 2 to 3 month trial period for prospective residents in a furnished en-suite room.
Abbeyfield-Ajijic residents are free to come and go as they please, there are no restrictions or petty rules. The few house courtesies which we ask residents to observe are only those necessary to ensure that all our residents can live in peace and comfort. Residents bring their own furniture. The monthly rent and service charges are reasonable as Abbeyfield-Ajijic is a not for profit charitable organization and include:
On site staff
24 hour emergency call system
Electricity, heating, hot and cold water
Full maintenance of property
One home cooked meals each day, the ingredients for a buffet style breakfast and self-made lunch
The use of all common areas
A fully equipped laundry room
The charges are payable monthly in advance and vary by size of the unit.
Abbeyfield-Ajijic requires residents to nominate a “sponsor”, perhaps a relative, friend or professional advisor who can be contacted and consulted if an emergency arises. No financial involvement is required, just the willingness to offer support if it is needed.
We are not a care or nursing home and our staff are not allowed or qualified to give personal care other than in an emergency and only for a limited time. Our staff is also not permitted to administer medication.
Most illnesses can be managed within the Abbeyfield-Ajijic home. Should a resident become too frail to continue to live safely in the house, the situation and possible alternatives will be discussed with them and the sponsor. Although it is the resident’s and their relatives responsibility to find alternative accommodation, we will do all that we can to assist you.
We regret that due to the nature of our home, we cannot accommodate pets. Our home has one ‘house’ pet for the residents’ enjoyment.
