Assisted living, sometimes referred to as ‘extra care housing’, gives you access to the care and support you might need, whilst allowing you to retain your independence in a home of your own.
The care provided can vary from odd-jobs around the house such as cleaning and ironing, to helping you with personal care such as getting out of bed and dressed, having a bath or shower, or taking your medication.
But you still have your own apartment or flat, with your own front door that allows you to maintain your independence.
Here at Birchgrove, we offer assisted living that is tailored to your needs.
Our apartments are available with 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms, and decorated in the style you desire.
Buying an apartment after retirement isn’t always the best or easiest option – particularly with stamp duty and estate agent fees – so we offer our apartments for rent, giving you easier access to a home and the care that perfectly suits your needs.
Though you might not need much help today, the amount of care you need might change over time.
At Birchgrove, our care and support is flexible to your needs and will be carried out by people you know and who understand your needs.
It is also constantly monitored, so if things change you’ll always get the right level of care.
