Claydon House in Lewes offers a wonderful blend of the old and the new in one breathtaking location. The home, which delivers residential care, nursing care and specialist dementia support for up to 47 elderly people, is based around a beautiful double-fronted Victorian house – a former Admiral’s residence – with a purpose-built new extension providing the very highest standards of dementia care.
Located on a quiet residential crescent in the heart of Lewes, in East Sussex, Claydon House has been sensitively converted, retaining the original building’s unique character while offering outstanding care facilities. The combination of nursing and dementia care at one location ensures that residents’ changing care requirements can be catered for without the need to move to a different service.
Claydon House has an enviable reputation for delivering excellent care. The home’s dementia care provision in the newly completed Admiralty wing has been designed to meet the University of Stirling’s standards, which are widely acknowledged as providing the best living environment for people living with dementia. Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre is renowned as the world leader in this field. The Stirling approach ensures that residents are able to move freely around the home, with bedrooms and communal areas appropriately laid out and clearly signposted to minimise confusion or disorientation. Each bedroom features a memory box by its front door, where mementos from a resident’s life help to personalise their room and also remind staff and visitors of the individual’s life story.
Claydon House is ideally equipped to provide residential support for elderly people living with different types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and Korsacoff’s syndrome. However, staff never lose sight of the fact that, first and foremost, Claydon House is home to our residents.
The home offers a full range of residential, nursing and specialist dementia support, including trial stays, respite breaks and convalescent care as well as long term care. Residents are encouraged to bring important personal possessions to personalise their rooms. Claydon House operates an open visiting policy, where residents and loved ones may visit at convenient times. In common with all of our homes, Claydon House’s manager has a qualified nursing background. The home is fully registered with the Care Quality Commission and has ISO9001/2000 and Hospitality Assured accreditation.
