Enriching life in a beautiful setting
Independent and family-owned, Birchwood has been offering outstanding care to the elderly for over 30 years at Birchwood House, our beautiful care home in Speldhurst.
Our dedicated, qualified and experienced staff support residents enabling them to live as fulfilling lives as possible, by providing a safe environment and a variety of activities to engage and stimulate them.
A true home from home
At Birchwood House Rest Home, our residents are at the heart of everything we do, putting their comfort and independence first. We pride ourselves on our family atmosphere providing a true home from home.
Birchwood House is a former manor house set in nine acres of landscaped gardens in the heart of the Kent Weald. People tell us Birchwood feels like home the minute they step through the front door from the communal and individual rooms and soft furnishings, to wholesome home-cooked food and friendly staff.
Pulling the stops out with Birchwood events
Ensuring everyone enjoys their time in the home is something we work hard to achieve. We hold regular in-house activities and seasonal events and go to great lengths to plan and run these ensuring everyone takes part and has fun.
At Birchwood, we’re determined to do everything we can to give our residents a personalised approach where we put loving care at the heart of everything we do. Our recently launched Birchwood Promise acts as a constant reminder of what caring at Birchwood means.
Last year we launched Birchwood Smiles. Every team member wears a lanyard around their neck, with a large picture of their smiling face on it. This helps them engage with residents and clients, even when wearing full PPE. So much of caring is about making a human connection and we want to remind our residents that there’s always a smiling face not far away.
Birchwood House has a supply of tablets for residents to use at any time. We actively encourage residents to stay in touch and video call their families and are always happy to set this up.
Exercise and wellbeing
We understand the importance of exercise and well being at Birchwood. Whilst some of our usual activities were reduced at the start of the pandemic, we’ve been fortunate to keep residents mobile both indoors and outdoors.
We have beautiful grounds at Birchwood, set in 9 acres of the countryside so residents are always able to go for a walk and feel they are escaping the home. Popular walks include a gentle stroll observing all the wildlife and flowers. Our residents love to see all the nature we have the privilege of sharing our home with including deer and rabbits.
