We run a range of different care settings in Croydon through Whitgift Care – from sheltered living to full time end of life care. While they all tailor to slightly different needs, they all share the same ethos of bringing people together to create a genuine community where residents can live life to the fullest.

Our three homes: The Whitgift Almshouses, Whitgift House and Wilhelmina House, are happy, thriving and secure communities where staff are on hand 24 hours a day to meet residents’ needs, whether it is a full programme of activities, a friendly chat or just a cup of tea.

Our care services

Sheltered living

Whitgift Care’s sheltered living provides residents with self-contained rental flats designed specifically for residents who want an independent lifestyle coupled with the security of knowing that help is always close by.

Residential care

Our full residential care offers residents a homely and inclusive environment where meals and personal care are provided. Full residential care is best suited for those in need of more help when required but who want flexibility in their daily routines.

Full nursing care

Whitgift Care offers full nursing care for those who need personalised 24-hour daily nursing by a professional team of staff including qualified registered nurses.

We are proud to hold the prestigious Gold Standard Award in End of Life Care which is testament to our commitment to the highest standards of care. The Gold Standard Framework ensures quality improvement through training, quality assurance and quality recognition. In September 2013, we were re-accredited and awarded ‘Beacon Status’ which is the highest accolade for the award.

Respite care

Respite care is available to those who require short term residential care for a few weeks or months. It can give carers a well-earned break or enable personalised care to help guests get back on their feet. Our respite care also allows guests to be part of our warm community during their stay, get a feel for the home and meet staff and residents.

1596 Club day care

The 1596 Club, our welcoming and professional day care service, offers older people a home from home, helping relieve loneliness and isolation whilst helping maintain an independent lifestyle. Members can enjoy friendship and companionship through the many social events on offer, as well as gaining assistance with additional needs.
