Friars Mead


Location and contact details

Rockliffe Avenue, Kings Langley, WD4 8DR

Friars Mead, established in 1991 as an independent society within the Abbeyfield movement, is located in pleasant, quiet grounds close to the centre of Kings Langley.

It provides high-quality specialist residential care in a welcoming, friendly and homely environment for frail, older people requiring personal care.

Staff recognize that the decision to move into residential care is often difficult for both the elderly person and their family. Friars Mead will become their home, and so staff encourage residents to surround themselves with personal effects and small items of furniture to recreate their home environment.

For all residents at Friars Mead, staff aim to provide the very best level of care, from tailored care requirements and specialist equipment to the provision of a wide range of activities, entertainment and outside visits.
