Is the time right for you or your loved one to make the transition into care? Looking for a care home can be a big change and a daunting decision, but Wandsworth residents who are beginning their care journey should take note of a newly opened care home in Tooting, which is bringing much-needed care beds to the borough.

The Meadowcroft, a 64-bedroom home which opened in February 2023, is renovating and expanding the provision of care beds in Wandsworth, including en-suite facilities, which are currently in short supply in the area.

The newest addition to the not-for-profit care provider Greensleeves Care, which has achieved a ‘Top 20 Large Care Home Group’ Award for the sixth year running, The Meadowcroft is situated in the heart of a vibrant new neighbourhood on the site of the historic Springfield University Hospital in Tooting, as part of the Springfield Village development. It offers award-winning residential, dementia and nursing care all within a modern environment built specifically for care.

Wandsworth Times:

Nestled among new healthcare facilities, homes, shops, cafes and a 32-acre public park, the stunning care home includes all the features associated with high standards of modern care and more, with everything from a wellbeing and beauty salon, an elegant cafe and even a cinema. Modern and fully equipped bedrooms with en-suite wet rooms are the standard, while the beautiful, landscaped gardens offer a delightful place to collect your thoughts, take in the fresh air or socialise with friends.

As you walk through the doors, you’ll notice a different way of providing personalised care for older people; after all, good care is not just about the right facilities. Greensleeves Care takes pride in its not-for-profit ethos and its Home for Life Commitment, a special guarantee that no one will be asked to leave if they run out of funds, providing financial peace of mind to residents and their families. Greensleeves Care homes deliver care based on award-winning methodologies specifically designed to support participation and independence.

The Meadowcroft combines the very best of the old and new, as both the team and the first residents transferred over from nearby care home Ronald Gibson House. Presenting both a modern environment fit to deliver the high standards of care that Greensleeves Care is known for, and an established community of professionals and residents ready and waiting to welcome new friends from day one, this community of individuals is full of life.

The Meadowcroft is well-equipped to provide residents with a home for the entirety of their care journey. Skilled and dedicated, staff are on hand to provide support, from basic personal care all the way through to assisting those with dementia and more advanced nursing needs. Therefore, there is a greatly reduced chance that anyone would have to move homes simply because their care needs change.

Victor Njoku, Home Manager, said of the Meadowcroft:

“We are very much a community home here and we want to keep it that way. We ensure residents join in with local groups and activities, local parents bring their children to spend time with residents, schools volunteer to come in and support and befriend residents.”

With award-winning, 24/7 person-centred care delivered by an established team; beautiful facilities, nourishing and appetising meals that are cooked daily on site, as well as the thoughtful activities programme designed to help residents live fulfilling lives, there is an abundance of reasons to get in touch.
