Life at Greenwich Gardens

At Greenwich Gardens, you choose the lifestyle that suits you.

In the morning, a local shop can deliver your daily milk or newspaper, and during the day we’ll call you to check that you’re okay. After breakfast in your apartment or the restaurant, you might choose to meet friends or take part in one of our regular activities in our social lounge. At lunchtime, the restaurant serves delicious hot meals or you may want to prepare lunch for yourself or for friends or family in your apartment.

If you fancy a change of scenery, Markeaton Park is just five minutes’ walk away and there are often events happening there. Or you might want to pop into Mackworth village or Derby for a spot of shopping or lunch.

In the afternoon, you could join us in the lounge for one of our regular social events, take part in an arts and craft workshop, or perhaps visit our cinema or games rooms. By evening, you may want to take it easy after all the activity! If not, you can always join friends to watch TV, or for a chat, a game of cards, or a mutual hobby.

We have a friendly and varied community at Greenwich Gardens with people from all walks of life.
