Our Aims and Approach to Care
At Coast Care Homes, we intend to provide our residents with a comfortable and happy home suited to their own individual needs. We pride ourselves on providing exceptionally high standards of care from qualified and experienced staff, having more carers on duty than at most other care homes. This means that our homes are always staffed to enable us to meet our residents' needs, 24 hours a day. The high standard of care found in both of our homes can be recognised by our status as a Preferred Provider to East Sussex County Council. We aim to preserve dignity and self-respect at all times and adopt a unique and forward thinking approach to dementia care implemented in all our care homes. Before accepting anyone into our homes, we carry out a full assessment of their needs, welcoming male or female residents of 55 years and over.
We aim to make day-to-day life in our homes as fulfilling as possible for every individual resident. At Coast Care Homes, our core belief is to promote choice and independence within a loving and stimulating environment. We value all of our residents' unique personalities and we strive at all times to recognise and appreciate their whole life achievements and their many contributions to their families, carers and to society in general. Entertainment activities and outings (see Outings section) are regularly organised for the residents and we place a high priority on targeting activities and workshops to our residents own individual needs. We place the highest importance on our resident's emotional needs.
We understand that moving into a care home can sometimes be a difficult and stressful process and strive to make the experience as easy as possible for our residents and their families. Coast Care Homes invites residents who are considering moving into a home to stay with us for a trial period, however short. Once a resident has moved into one of our homes, ongoing visits from family and friends are welcomed at any time. To make visiting a relative or friend as easy as possible, overnight accommodation in our homes can be arranged with meals available free of charge.
Catering & Facilities
For us, good quality, home-cooked food complements our homely, caring environment. Our home-cooked meals are consistently made with fresh, local produce, supplied by local a butcher, grocer and a dairy farm, ensuring high-quality, delicious meals are provided every day. Our cooks cater for many varied diets, menus are changed regularly and residents' requests for new meals are accommodated for.
All our homes have been fully refurbished within the last five years, allowing us to provide our residents with the comfort of an en-suite bedroom. Both homes enjoy a large lounge and dining area with pleasant, secluded gardens complete with water features and raised gardening beds, enabling residents to continue with a gardening hobby if they wish to do so. Lifts and Stair lifts ensure easy access to all floors and ground floor bedrooms are available. We are happy to accept small pets if appropriate.
