Traditionally, as we entered later life, there was the looming discussion of moving into a care or retirement home.
Luckily, today there are plenty more options available to choose from that allow you to keep your independence whilst having access to the care and support you might need.
One of these is assisted living, which allows you to have your own home and keep the things that make it feel like your own, whilst having assistance and care at hand for when you need a bit of help or support.
Our assisted living apartments here at Birchgrove are designed to not only be nice to look at, but easy to use too.
We offer one, two and three bedroom apartments that are smart, comfortable, light and secure – perfect for those who are looking for a home that’s a bit more manageable.
You’ll also find a community of like-minded independent people in later life who enjoy socialising and making the most of the facilities available at Birchgrove – whilst being able to maintain your own privacy when you want it.
We’re more than just lovely apartments. We’ve got a great range of additional facilities on offer too.
Our gardens allow you to keep your green-fingers busy or just feel the grass under your toes, whilst our onsite restaurant is perfect for the times you don’t feel like cooking, as our chefs are more than happy to!
We also have a wellness & fitness suite, hairdressing & beauty salon, club room & library, all of which are available for you to enjoy, right on your doorstep.
Over time, you may find you want more support at home. The care and support we offer at Birchgrove is tailored to the individual, so you only pay for what you need.
Initially, that may just be some help with the ironing or a spot of cleaning, but over time you may want help with medication, getting out of bed and dressed, or having a bath or shower.
We are able to give you the right level of care and support for you, carried out by people you know and who understand your needs.
