Our goal at Abbeyfield House Dominion City is to provide seniors with a balance between community, peace of mind, safety, and independence

Abbeyfield House in Dominion City, an enhanced independent living residence, is the first Abbeyfield in Manitoba.

This model of retirement-age community living is a global one. There are over 1100 Abbeyfield Houses around the world designed to provide safety and comfort for seniors who no longer wish to maintain their own home.

Residents of Abbeyfield enjoy the privacy of their own suite and share spacious common areas for dining, relaxing, and activities.


Light housekeeping and weekly laundry are provided. Residents receive a self serve breakfast and share nutritious lunches, dinners, and night snacks prepared by staff.

Abbeyfield House Dominion City is a beautiful spacious home located in the heart of a small, peaceful rural community in the Emerson-Franklin Municipality.

Abbeyfield House opened to accept residents in the fall of 2016.

“The transition from home to Abbeyfield would be a great one. It’s like another step that allows people more independence. They won’t have to move into another place as their needs increase.”

Peggy Lenton-Unrau
Resource Coordinator for home care in Dominion City from 1998-2010
