Patient Centred Care
The John Whitgift Foundation has been caring for the people of Croydon for over 425 years, from our founder John Whitgift building the Hospital of The Holy Trinity to our modern-day care homes.
We are committed to creating a welcoming and supported retirement community. Our private person-centred care homes in South Croydon support the elderly retirement community by providing patient-centred care, and affordable residential and nursing care, on a short or long-term basis.
Situated on the beautiful grounds of Whitgift School, our Whitgift House care setting offers a range of services from full-time residential care to sheltered apartments.
Residents at Whitgift House receive the best care from qualified nursing professionals with weekly GP visits to ensure each individual receives the best quality respite and nursing care. Whitgift House enjoys a special connection with the staff and pupils of Whitgift School and are often treated to performances and recitals from staff and students.
Residents at Wilhelmina House enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the beautifully kept gardens, sitting on the terrace or relaxing in the garden rooms behind the building.
Within our safe and secure environment, residents enjoy a high quality of residential care and respite care. Our on-duty care staff are available 24/7, with every meal prepared by our in-house chef and daily activities planned to keep our residents active and engaged.
Steeped in history the Almshouses is located in the heart of Croydon’s town centre. Residents here enjoy supported independent living, under their own care in self-catered sheltered housing that overlooks a beautiful private quadrangle.
In line with the wishes of our founder, the Almshouses has specific entry criteria that must be met for admittance. Residents here must be over the age of 60, of modest means, communicant members of the Church of England, and come from either the parishes of Lambeth, Croydon, or Kent.
