Ashgreen House is an attractive care home located in a residential area, opposite Foxfield Primary School in Woolwich .
A stone’s throw from a small selection of shops and eateries, our care home is a 10-minute walk from a train and tube station, providing direct access to London and attractions such as Covent Garden.
Our dedicated team provides a range of care and support for our residents, including residential care, nursing care, intermediate care and palliative care, as well as day care and respite care.
Our care home has been designed with the usual comforts you’d expect such as welcoming lounges, light and airy dining rooms and cosy bedrooms, which provide a warm place for our residents to rest and relax.
Ashgreen House also has beautiful gardens, a shop and specially designed reminiscence stations, enabling our residents to enjoy a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
However it’s the small personal touches and our friendly team, who care for our residents as if they were members of their own family, which make Ashgreen House a true home from home.
We welcome visits from family and friends and have an open door policy, so whether loved ones like to pop in for a coffee or take part in an activity, we encourage them to become part of the community within our home.
We hold regular meetings for residents and relatives, enabling our residents and their loved ones to be directly involved in everyday life at Ashgreen House.
Our spacious 52 bedrooms are all en-suite and have television points. Some of our ground-floor bedrooms are available with French doors which open out into a secluded garden.
Bedrooms are tastefully decorated and furnished, although we do encourage our residents to bring personal ornaments, pictures and small items of furniture to make their rooms their own.
We have several lounge areas throughout the home, which are areas for our residents to use as they wish, whether taking part in activities, catching up with friends and family or simply reading a good book.
The home also has a number of reminiscence stations to provide residents with a multi-sensory experience. These include a traditional seaside scene, complete with a Punch and Judy stand, sandpit and old fashioned beach-themed games.
Taking the style of a traditional corner store, Ashgreen House has its own shop, where we sell a range of toiletries and tasty treats.
Our dining rooms provide a welcoming atmosphere to enjoy delicious home-cooked meals in the company of others.
The beautiful gardens are landscaped with sensory planting and raised flower beds for our residents who like to do a spot of light gardening. The gardens also include seating areas and sheltered spots to sit and take in the surroundings.

Our care team is on-hand 24 hours a day, every day of the year and staff are dedicated to delivering care with kindness.
To ensure we continue to provide the best standards of care and support to our residents, we recruit and train only the best staff.
Whilst they receive a variety of on-going training to ensure their skills remain up-to-date, along with an enhanced DBS check (formerly CRB), it is their dedication to our residents which makes them truly special.
We believe it is important that our residents spend their time as they choose, so have a dedicated activities person to support them to take part in interesting activities, rekindle old past times and try new things.
We have a hairdressing salon and our residents also enjoy being pampered with manicures and hand massages.
Regular activities on offer include everything from singing sessions, bingo, light exercise, puppet shows, reminiscence activities, arts and crafts, live music entertainment and themed community events.
Our residents also enjoy regular day trips to local garden and shopping centres, as well as visiting South End.
We pride ourselves on treating people as individuals, so all our residents have care plans tailored to their individual medical, social and emotional needs. We review care plans on a regular basis and involve family and friends in this process wherever possible.
The range of personal care services we can provide, in partnership with local professionals, include:
- Optical care
- Dental care
- Key worker
Our catering team prides themselves on preparing nutritious, seasonal home-cooked meals, along with mouth-watering home-baked cakes for afternoon tea.
Residents help us to shape the menus and our catering team spends time with them to get feedback on the dishes and their likes and dislikes. They are also able to cater for a variety of dietary requirements.
Breakfast includes a wide variety of choice from cereals and toast to a traditional cooked breakfast.
Lunch and dinnertimes see a selection of sandwiches, home-made soups, salads, jacket potatoes and hot meals such as a Sunday roast with all the trimmings and favourites including fish and chips, cottage pie and a hearty casserole.
There is also an array of snacks and refreshments available throughout the day for residents and their loved ones if they get a bit peckish.
