Ashgreen House Residential and Nursing Home in Woolwich

Sandbach Place, Woolwich, London, SE18 7EX
Nursing care

Residential care
Respite care

Located in a quiet residential area of Woolwich, Ashgreen House is a forever home. We offer high-quality residential care, nursing care and palliative care, meaning residents receive the support that adapts to their unique and changing needs. This gives extra peace of mind to loved ones that the upheaval of moving into a care home only has to happen once.

Opposite a primary school, our residents think their care home is in the perfect location as they often hear the giggles and cheers from the schoolchildren. If you were to visit during the school’s break time, our residents will tell you they go to a certain lounge to ensure they are in earshot of the hustle and bustle of the playground. For many, it brings back the most wonderful memories, especially for those who spent years doing the school run with their own children.

More than just a forever home

Not only are we proud of our spacious en-suite bedrooms and welcoming lounge and dining areas, where loved ones can visit whenever they choose, but it’s also our unique spaces that we think makes us truly special.

Around every corner you will find something new to discover and explore, with reminiscence stations on every floor. These are continually updated to provide our residents with new stimulation. They are a real talking point of the home and at the moment, whether you are on the ground floor or the top floor, you will be able to step back in time to the 1920s or enjoy a traditional seaside scene. Residents can enjoy the Punch and Judy stands, feel the sand between their toes in the sandpits and explore old fashioned beach-themed games.

You can also turn the clock back by visiting our traditional corner store, which is located near the reception and sets the scene of our care home the moment you walk in. You could be in a 1940s street, rather than the heart of Woolwich. The traditional signage and shop window are beautiful, and our residents love to visit to pick up some tasty treats and toiletries, giving them their much-needed independence.

And for our residents who prefer to be outdoors then our beautiful landscaped gardens are a tranquil place to be. With seating areas, hanging baskets, sensory planting and raised flower beds, our residents love to spend time here.

Some of our green-fingered residents take responsibility for the upkeep of the raised flowerbeds. Others are able to enjoy the freedom of their very own secluded garden with their ground-floor bedrooms opening into a separate mini garden, where they sit and enjoy the warmer weather.

And if you or your loved one isn’t keen on gardening, the home has its own dedicated activities person who provides a weekly timetable of activities to meet all of our residents’ needs and likes. Sometimes the team can help our residents to rekindle pastimes they once enjoyed.

We strive to create truly wonderful, meaningful memories and experiences for our residents. Whether this is in the care home itself or venturing out into the wonderful community of Woolwich for trips to gardens and more. No two weeks are the same!

At Sanctuary Care our number one priority is to keep our residents, their relatives and our staff safe.

With the increasing number of reported cases of Coronavirus in the UK, we have taken the difficult decision to minimise all non-essential visits to our residential and nursing homes until further notice. These include routine visits from loved ones and friends, entertainers, hairdressers, volunteers, work experience students and school parties.

We have not taken this decision lightly and understand this will be upsetting for relatives who want to visit loved ones. We do feel this is the best way to keep our residents safe and is one of many proactive, preventative measures we are taking to stop this infection getting into our homes.

We do hope you understand why we are taking these precautions. Please don’t hesitate to call if you would like to speak to us directly if you have any questions or concerns.
