Our home environment is light and spacious with a welcoming atmosphere. The wellbeing of our residents is at the heart of everything we do at Caring Homes, and our dedicated and passionate care teams work hard to exceed standards.

Living in My World

Every team member receives our unique ‘Living in My World’ dementia training which is accredited by City and Guilds. It highlights the importance of meaningful activities and a stimulating environment for people living with dementia, as well as addressing clinical aspects of care.

The local area

Sitting between Eastbourne and Hastings, the quiet seaside town of Bexhill-on-sea is perhaps best known for the De La Warr Pavilion and its link to classic motor racing. To many people it remains the quintessential English seaside resort, with its wide promenade and beaches.

The wider county of East Sussex offers the best of everything; from the beauty of the rolling South Downs and the Seven Sisters Country Park, to the historical sites of Bodiam Castle, Battle Abbey, Lewes Castle and Glyndebourne.
