Southlands Dementia Launch Event

Southlands Place Nursing Home in Bexhill on Sea, this week launched its Residential Dementia facilities by hosting a free local community event on-site.

Over 40 guests learnt about Southlands exciting plans in the months to come that respond to a growing demand for Dementia care in our community and were able to see how the home has extended its Dementia care provision as part of the Caring Homes Group wider investment in its 68 homes nationally.

Visitors to the home, residents and colleagues joined together for lunch and listened as guest speakers shared how Caring Homes’ unique dementia training ‘Living in my world’ helps to improve lives of people living with dementia. They also learnt more about the new regular Dementia Café being hosted for friends and neighbours.

The home was delighted to also enable guests to hear from Dementia expert, Sally Hemmings, from Bexhill Dementia Action Alliance and Carl Bradley from Caring Homes.

Many were offered the opportunity to see Southlands latest design features that are helping people to live well with dementia, including the latest technology, new internal signage that specifically helps people living with dementia navigate around their home more easily, new furniture, fixtures and furnishings.

The vibrant well attended event received very positive feedback from members of the local community which included many health and social care professionals, some visiting the home for the first time. The event culminated with a very inclusive ribbon cutting to launch the new dementia facilities which was completed by residents, colleagues and guests together.

Southlands Place is a modern purpose-built care home, in quiet residential area with views of the coast and beautiful countryside visible from the dining room and terraces and offers respectful residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 71 residents. It can provide a complete care pathway for residents – with residential, nursing and dementia care all available in one location, which means that residents can feel confident that their home will cater for them both now and in the future, should their care needs change.

All the rooms have been designed and furnished to the highest standard and every bedroom features en-suite facilities. The ground-floor rooms have private access to the landscaped gardens. Communal living throughout the home is enhanced with kitchenettes in each dining area with an additional range of small nooks and quiet lounges where residents can relax together, as well as with family and friends.
