Located in the East Sussex market town of Heathfield, Heffle Court is a purpose-built care home providing specialist care for 32 elderly residents living with a form of dementia. The home offers a range of care provision from residential to nursing care depending upon the needs of the individual.
Heffle Court retirement home has a truly excellent reputation amongst residents, families and care professionals for the quality of care provided. The home focuses on therapeutic activities based on residents’ life experience and even has a smallholding, Willow Farm and teashop.
Heffle Court’s dementia care provision 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.
Heffle Court is ideally equipped to provide residential and nursing 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, Heffle Court is home to our residents.
This care home offers a full range of 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. Heffle Court operates an open visiting policy, where residents and loved ones may visit at convenient times. In common with all of our homes, Heffle Court’s manager has a qualified nursing background.

"I struggled with putting my husband into a care home, but unfortunately it was taken out of my hands and the Social Worker said that he must go into a home for Respite.
