Summer offers for shorter stays in our care homes - helping you to take a break

Sussex Housing & Care are pleased to be able to support shorter stays in each of our care homes over the summer holidays, and indeed throughout the year.

Perhaps you are caring for a relative or friend, and need to take a break?  Or perhaps you are still living independently at home, but want a couple of weeks to enjoy home cooked meals, good company and a variety of different activities each day?

Why not pop along to your preferred home to say hello - have a look around, and maybe join our residents for lunch? Then see how you feel before making a decision.

Stay two weeks and get two days free

This offer is currently available for Saxonwood care home in Battle, Ardath care home in Bexhill, and Woodlands care home in Crowborough.

It is valid for stays up to and including Saturday 30 September, and is based on a minimum stay of two weeks.

Please note prices will vary depending on the type of room and individual care needs.
