A different approach to retirement living
Here from our residents why they've moved to Queensgate Apartments
One thing that will strike you when you visit Queensgate Apartments is how spacious the apartments are. Accessibility is something that everyone remarks upon when they visit the show apartment and see the bathroom is not only beautiful but future-designed to be practical and accessible. Every detail has been thought through to ensure you have a home in which you can live independently, securely and happily.
And the benefits may astound you. Our 2 and 3 bedroom apartments have been very popular with those downsizing from large family homes who want plenty of space for clothes and treasured possessions. And if childen come to stay they have an additional bedroom space to welcome a visitor or friend. Invariably these second and third rooms are being used as hobby rooms for what is fast becoming a wide repertoire of interests from puzzles to painting, arts and craft through to knitting and sewing.
Moving from a large family home to something easier to manage raises dozens of questions and triggers waves of emotions. The practical side of our brain tells us the earlier we do it, the better we are – physically, socially and financially.
Yet, understandably it’s not a task anyone undertakes lightly or instantly. So, you will be glad to know we have a warm and compassionate team here who can help you with your questions and explore what’s important – at your own pace.
The upside is you can stay independent, close to friends and family, yet meet other people and live a different lifestyle – where you can spend your energy doing things you want to do, rather than house-related work you have to. Join in with a spot of Chair Aerobics in our Wellness suite, invite the family over for lunch in the brasserie where our chef cooks home grown veg from the gardens. Read a book or the paper in the library, say hello and grab a cup of tea with your neighbours in the snug or our club room or simply treat yourself to a bit of a pamper or hair cut in the salon. Why not drop in and take a look at what life could be like?
The notions of community and belonging are experiences each of our residents enjoy in their own individual ways. And they can take many forms. There are those who enjoy the bustle of a large and lively group whereas others like nothing more than a quiet walk through our gardens, or losing themselves in a novel.
Our aim at Birchgrove is to create a social environment that is broad and inclusive, accessible for all, but is unpressured. We never forget that we’re here to help our residents to get as much, or as little, from each day as they wish – and we’re always here to listen and ready to try new things.
Everyone has a different reason for moving to us. Location is of course a huge driver; people want to stay close to family and friends and live in an area they are familiar with so they can get out and about confidently. They also want to live in a place they feel safe, where people are on hand to help if needs be – plus enjoy the opportunity of being around others and socialising.
If you wish to drop in, you'll find us located right next to Queen Mary’s Hospital within easy reach of Sidcup High Street. And if you'd like us to give you a personal tour, we'd be delighted... and you can book this at a time to suit you right here
