Finding the right care home in Eastbourne

Choosing a care home for a loved one can be difficult, however with 52 care homes in Eastbourne, and 24 offering specialist dementia care, it is important you make the right decision on which care home is best for your loved one’s needs. Here are a few of our top tips to help you narrow your options.

Location, location, location

As well as thinking about transport links and ensuring friends and family are able to visit, it is also important to consider where in Eastbourne your loved one would be most happy to live. With so many care homes to consider you can afford to be a little picky. For example, how about Mortain Place Care Home, which is located opposite the marina and would allow your loved one to watch the boats sailing past whilst having their evening meal. If something in a more residential area would suit better, then check out Inglewood Nursing Home with some lovely gardens and only a few minutes walk to Hampden Park for an afternoon stroll.

How to get the 'at home' feeling

As Eastbourne is a small town, it is important to think about the lifestyle that would be offered to your loved one in the care home, and to find one that would help them feel most at home. Below are a few things we recommend you consider when narrowing down your options:

Care homes with gardens

Most care homes in Eastbourne have a garden, however they can vary a lot in size and functionality, which makes it important to understand how important having the outdoor space is to your loved one. Would they be happy with a lovely seating area where they can spend time with family and breathe in the fresh sea air? Or do they prefer to help potter in the garden? If so, perhaps Elstree Court Care Home could be well suited.

Pet friendly care homes

Did you know that some care homes in Eastbourne will let your loved one’s pet visit them? Moving into a home and having to leave your pet with friends or family can be upsetting, so perhaps knowing they can still see them is important. If it is, we recommend asking care homes about their pet policy, because like Bendigo Nursing Home in central Eastbourne, they may let pets visit upon appointment.

Care home activities and days out

To help residents feel at home and continue their hobbies, most care homes in Eastbourne offer a wide range of activities and facilities. Many even encourage residents to share and teach others their talents, whether it be baking, art or dancing. When possible care homes also try to organise small outings for their residents to Royal Hippodrome Theatre, walks along Beachy Head to take in fresh air and see the white chalk cliffs, or to simply have fish and chips overlooking the Eastbourne Marina. Care homes are generally very accommodating so if there is something your loved one likes to do, ensure you ask if it would be possible when staying at the home.
