The safety of our residents and staff is of paramount importance to us. Our absolute focus and duty is to safeguard our existing residents and staff. Our strident approach is enabling us to welcome and move new residents into their own self-contained apartments at our community at Queensgate Apartments, Sidcup and prepare others for their move to Woodbank Apartments, Woking when the community opens in autumn.
Now testing capacity has increased and the availability of PPE equipment has improved we are in a much better place to help others who find themselves in similar situations.
None of this is easy, but if you find yourself needing an alternative solution and need to move at speed, please get in touch and continue that conversation with us. We’d like to think we can help you embrace a different future.
Read the stories of our residents as they share what they love most about living at a Birchgrove apartment.
Feeling like you’re amongst friends. Waking up every morning feeling happy, safe and confident your day can go wherever you want it to. Knowing you’re somewhere you choose to be, where you can truly express yourself, personalise your surroundings and live life the way you want to live. These are some of the emotional things that make a home, and the kind of experiences we know are important to you.
(As well beautiful and comfortable, our apartments are future designed to make living easier and better for those in later life!)
Assisted living should always be flexible. We offer our apartments for rent because that just suits some people better. Alongside the rent we also charge a one-off membership fee.
Renting in retirement is getting more and more popular because it offers all the benefits of independent living without all the stress of owning a house. So not only is there no need for stamp duty costs or legal fees when you move in, you can also wave bye-bye to those day-to-day maintenance commitments, like building repairs and mowing your lawn.
It’s your retirement. Why not do more of the things you want to do, and less of the things you don’t?
We believe that the kind of home you want to show off to your friends a little will be the kind of home you’ll love living in. We offer one, two or three bedroom apartments that are smart, comfortable, light and secure. Great for socialising in, but just as good for relaxing in too.
The care and support we offer at Birchgrove is tailored to the individual, so you only pay for what you need.
We are developing a portfolio of high quality assisted living apartments. The first development Queensgate Apartments, in Sidcup, Kent opened its doors to residents in May 2019 and our expansion continues to take pace.
Because we’re in the London Borough of Bexley, there’s easy access to central London, Kent and the surrounding countryside. It means that when you’re in the mood for shopping, or eating out, or maybe exploring some of the history of the area, it’s all just a short trip away.

We're delighted to call Woking the home of our second retirement community. The town has so much to offer and is the ideal location for retirees who want to enjoy community living with easy access to the hustle and bustle of the big city.
The new apartments will be located on Holly Bank Road, Hook Heath and will consist of 51 modern apartments with a range of onsite services and communal facilities.
The brand new show suite is now open. Viewing highly recommended by appointment only.
We have secured planning and works will commence in September 2019 for the development of 53 high quality assisted living apartments for people over 65 who want to live independently, but with support on hand.
This modern development will comprise of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, tastefully designed for comfort and relaxation. A range of communal facilities will also be available to include club room, restaurant, snug bar and private gardens, balcolnies and patios.
Birchgrove is backed by the socially conscious financial support of Bridges Fund Management. Bridges is a social impact fund, which in laymans terms means they only back businesses that can make the world a better place. We believe that the current housing options for people over 65 exclude a large section of those who don't want to manage another house purchase. Assisted Living for rent is the missing piece in the housing puzzle; not right for all, but perfect for some.
We are members of the Associated Retirement Community Operators (ARCO). We aim to operate all of our retirement communities according to the principles laid down in the ARCO Consumer Code. The Code sets high standards for operators and provides a benchmark for good practice.
