Walstead Place care home in Sussex retains many fine period features, which are complemented by recent additions including a magnificent new conservatory adjoining the substantial main lounge. The home itself is matched by its grounds; over two acres of rolling lawns, a rose garden and an accessible walled garden set to the backdrop of the beautiful West Sussex countryside.

Life in a Caring Home is viewed as a continuum of life – an opportunity to gain new experiences and learn new things – whilst maintaining your existing hobbies and interests.
At every Caring Home, there is a dedicated activities co-ordinator who is on hand to support residents in learning new hobbies and maintaining existing ones.
An activities programme is developed by the activities co-ordinators who work in conjunction with the clinical team in reviewing each individuals occupational interests and tailoring an activities programme that addresses them.
For further information about activities please visit our “living with us” section.

We did not think she would be around for much longer, but under the great care and friendly atmosphere of Walstead she has made a full recovery.

"The care home is in beautiful countryside and the building itself is very attractive, as are the residents' rooms. But, I recommend this care home particularly because of the carers themselves. My Mother has been resident for over 2 1/2 years and I have spent hours and hours visiting her there. The carers are dedicated, hardworking, humorous, patient, kind and caring people, absolutely marvellous. Whenever I leave her I know I don't have to worry about her wellbeing... carehomes.co.uk" - Marian N
