Coast Home Care Testimonials
To the wonderful people who work at Whitebriars. I would like to express my admiration for the many ways in which you care for the residents. It seems everyone I have heard about has gone above and beyond to look after my Mum. I am only sorry that I never got to meet you all in person. Knowing you were all looking out for Mum made it more bearable during these awful times. I will never forget your kindness, I cannot thank you enough. Heartfelt thanks to everyone of you.

Darryl & Nicki - May 2021
Just a line to say thank you all so much for the love and care you showed me while I was staying with you. I enjoyed my stay and feel very much better for it.
Gerry - May 2021
Whitebriars demonstrate a level of care and empathy that's refreshing to see in these uncertain times. They have kept the residents safe and comfortable - my mother is very happy there. Pre-booked visits for the named visitors are well-organised and feel very Covid safe. After the face-to-face visit,
I was able to look through the lounge window and see the amazing tea and cake selection laid on for their VE day celebration - everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Ron B - May 2021
I cannot express to anyone who is considering choosing a care home enough, that this may be the one for your loved one. They go absolutely above and beyond. They all care so much about each person in their home. Our mum is only 61 with dementia, deaf and partially sighted and everyone has been amazing.
It was the hardest decision to make, to choose a care home, I honestly believe that we have made the right choice for Mum. She will get everything she needs and more each day here at WhiteCliff. I am absolutely reassured that our Mum is safe, well cared for and stimulated here.
Michelle - May 2021
Lovely staff and very friendly and bubbly, and looking after my dad very well. They work really hard and made me feel welcome. Thank you for your help. 5-star service. Lovely food, events and activities for everyone daily.
Natalie - May 2021
I was very nervous and unsure about looking for a home for my mum but the lady that showed me around was very friendly and made me feel at ease, she took her time to show me around the home and go through any questions.
The rooms were nice, light and homely and there was a singalong happening in the
My mum has never been a social lady before and I didn't think she would get involved in activities but with a lot of persuasion they managed to get my mum involved in a variety of activities, it was so lovely to see photos of my mum on social media of Mum laughing and smiling and being engaged.
The office staff kept me updated regularly with everything i needed to know which was great because it made me at feel i could enjoy my break knowing my mum was safe and enjoying her holiday.
I cant wait for my mum to go back for a period for respite care where hopefully the mini bus trips will be up and running again.
I would highly recommend Whitebeach.
M.P - May 2021
Very helpful and friendly staff. Positive atmosphere throughout. My Aunt is clearly in good hands as she seems happy and contented and is full of stories. I am very pleased she is in a caring and supportive environment.
Nephew - May 2021
I can honestly say that I can't think of a better, safer or more suitable place for my mum to stay. The team at Whitebeach have consistently gone above and beyond for Mum since the moment she was even first shown around.
Nothing is too much trouble, and every member of staff has the patience of a saint. It must be such a challenging and demanding job, even more so since Covid, but they don't let that get in the way of making each day fun and enjoyable for the residents, and they always welcome me with a smile and a chat.
They've always put the safety of the residents and the team first. I'd like to thank everybody there for the care given to Mum; it's such peace of mind. She loves you all and often talks about the laughs she has, and that means so much to Mum, myself and our family.
100% recommended with no hesitations!
David - April 2021
My mother was a resident of The Whitebeach for the last few years of her life. In that time, she has been extremely well cared for by all the staff. They encouraged her to take part in all the activities, even though she was not sure she would be able to join in. Her great love of the outdoors was encouraged, walking to the duck pond, going out in the minivan to different parts of East Sussex, perhaps having a glass of wine or two!
The days that she remembers with fondness have been when the carers have spent time with her; eating fish and chips on the pier, having a cheeky ice cream on the beach or digging carrots up from their garden trough.
The staff have always been cheerful and welcoming both by phone and face to face. Thank you once again for your infectious humour and joyfulness.
Kim - March 2021
To all the staff at the Bexhill Care Centre, Thank you so very much for looking after S so well, I know she has been very happy with you. You all do an amazing job and deserve a treat (message came with chocolate treats).
Sylvia - March 2021
Thank you for the first class care given to our Mum during her short stay with you.
Family of B - March 21
Just a thank you card to say how much I appreciated the care and kindness that you extended to my brother during his stay with you.
John - March 2021
The Whitebeach is everything we hoped a home would be for our Mum. There is always guilt and worry when you choose a home for a loved one, but we were so very lucky when we found The Whitebeach. The home itself has been made bright, cheery and happy by the personalised displays created by staff and residents. When you walk in, it feels like a cosy home. The staff know residents well, and this is noticeable as they move around greeting residents with affection. The pandemic was a frightening time, but The Whitebeach staff have been amazing. They have kept us updated, always put residents first, and continued to do all they could to keep it the loving, caring, dynamic environment it always is. I love to see the photos of Mum that they share - clearly happy and engaged, and most importantly for me, cared about. A wonderful home, with wonderful staff.
Annie - March 2021
Having had to move our Mum from another care home, we cannot believe the difference in care. Whitecliff go above and beyond. Mum always looks so lovely. There is always a huge range of daily engaging activities. We love seeing what the residents' are doing and this is always very evident on the Coast Care website. This has been invaluable during the pandemic. I just wish we had found this loving care home first. Staff are wonderful and nothing is ever too much trouble. Can’t thank everyone enough for giving our Mum the love and care she deserves.
Debbie - March 2021
Whitebeach and all the staff have been a lifesaver to me and my husband. It was such a relief to us to have my mother looked after in such a safe, warm, caring and fun environment. Whitebeach staff are highly experienced in dealing with dementia and Alzheimer's, and I can't thank them enough. Worth every penny!
Jane - March 2021
My husband has been a resident at this care home for several years; he has advanced Dementia, and the care he has received has been excellent; the fully trained staff are always kind and thoughtful, maintaining dignity for the patient at all times. The staff and management have kept the family fully informed of any problems that occur despite the challenging conditions during the pandemic. They have maintained lots of activities for the residents, and in normal times, there would have been outings in the minibus. There is also a large sunny garden for the residents to enjoy in the summer months.
Janice - March 2021
It is extremely difficult to relinquish the care of an elderly and frail relative when you have undertaken the task for so long, but everyone at The Whitebeach made it much easier than expected. I received constant updates and photographs, and I noticed proper cups and saucers at the tables - a mark of respect for the age of the residents. My relative was happy and so well cared for, and they made great strides in understanding how his dementia affected him. Thank you very much for making his final days worthwhile.
Lorraine - March 2021
My mother has Alzheimer's and has been at the home for quite a while. Like most people, it is a massive decision to make placing your loved one in a care home. It became apparent that Mum was becoming a danger to herself and those around her and was a constant worry to all her daughters. Mum had been a career in a nursing home, and the one disease she was afraid of getting was Alzheimer's; she knew what was going to happen to her and hard it would be for family and careers.
Whitebeach has taken away any doubts or worries about her safety and her mental state. They have treated her with patience, dignity and love. There are always activities to stimulate her mind, they feed her better than I feed myself, and she always has good company. Physically she is always clean, smart and tidy.
I would happily recommend Whitebeach; their care, love and safekeeping of my mum have been excellent; they give me peace of mind.
Karen - March 2021
To all the wonderful staff at Whitebeach, for your unrivalled care to all of your residents. We can't thank you enough.
Jan and family - February 2021
Just to say 'thank you' doesn't seem enough. We will never forget all you did for our Mum. You looked after her so well, she said you were a lovely bunch and told us it was such a lovely place to be. She said if anyone ever needed to go into care this would be the place to go. Without ALL of your hard work, dedication and compassion your home wouldn't be the same. Thank you all so much for everything you did for our Mum and for us.
Paul, Julia & Debbie - January 21

Mum needed to be moved to a nursing home due to ill health. We were sad that she had to leave. Throughout her stay the Manager and the team showed nothing but genuine warmth and respect for her. They had organised for her to come to my wedding in May by wheelchair and with carer. No hassle for them! They even packed her belongings and transported her stuff to the new home, saving my elderly Dad the stress. An absolutely excellent care home.
