Make yourself at home

Mission statements are fine, but we’d rather have a conversation.

We want you to feel at home at Birchgrove. By talking, listening and getting to know you better, we can help you find the home environment you’re looking for; with the independence you want, as well as the right level of care and support on hand, should you ever need it.

Beautiful and comfortable retirement apartments are nice – but those on their own don’t make a ‘home’.

Feeling like you’re amongst friends. Waking up every morning confident that your day can go wherever you want it to. Knowing you’re somewhere you chose to be, and living the life you want to live. These are the things that make a home, and the kind of experiences we love to offer.

(Oh, and our apartments are beautiful and comfortable too!)

Buying an apartment in your retirement isn’t always the best option – so why should it be the only option?

Assisted living should always be flexible. We offer our apartments for rent because that just suits some people better.

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 make apartments that you want to invite people around to.

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.

Care & Support

The care and support we offer at Birchgrove is tailored to the individual, so you only pay for what you need.

Birchgrove Sidcup. A great location for any occasion.

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.

Our Story

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.
