If you are looking for residential care for your loved one, we provide a home that enables them to live as fulfilling lives as possible. Our former manor house, is enhanced by 9-acres of picturesque landscaped gardens. We offer both long and short respite care depending on your specifications.
Is it the welcoming country house atmosphere, the nine acres of landscaped gardens in the heart of the Kent Weald, the caring staff or the smell of home-cooked food wafting from the kitchen that makes Birchwood feel like home? We're not sure, but we do know people tell us Birchwood feels like home the minute they step through the front door.
The picturesque grounds surrounding Birchwood House can be enjoyed all year round by our residents. Our 31 bedrooms include double rooms that are mostly south and west facing with views over the glorious High Kent Weald. We believe that if you eat well, you live well, which is why we go that extra mile when it comes to preparing highly nutritious meals that cater for special dietary requirements.
Birchwood is far from a rest home: it is a home where residents meet new friends and find new interests. Professional therapists lead weekly music for health sessions and structured reminiscences, while one of our full-time staff runs a variety of activities, ranging from games to crafts. Plus we have regular excursions and seasonal parties - supplemented with excellent home-made cakes prepared by our chef.
