What is it like to live in one of our care homes?
We are home to 36 people and give residential care, and we are dementia friendly.
Our dedicated team of friendly carers are on hand 24 hours a day and we love getting to know our individual residents so we can make sure they have all the care they need to enjoy their stay.
Residents can relax in our comfortable lounge, keep busy in our activities room or get back to nature in our beautiful mature gardens. With their very own single or double bedroom with en-suite, the choice is theirs.
Yes, we are pet friendly and very proud to have a gold award from the RSPCA! We’re also chuffed to have a 5* food hygiene certificate.

We're better together
We have a ‘Better Together’ programme.
Engaging and involving our residents is important to us. We constantly seek ideas, feedback and suggestions from our residents and their family in order to continuiously improve our service. Here are some of the ways we gain feedback:
Resident meeting - Residents meet regularly with our care home manager, they share feedback, staff updates and plan events.
Catering meeting - Our Chef Manager arranges catering meetings so you can give feedback about our dishes and recipes, and make suggestions for the menu.
Resident satisfaction survey - Every year we formally ask residents for their feedback in a questionnaire. This is anonymous feedback about all areas of our service.
Relative satisfaction survey - It’s important that your relatives or close friends have the opportunity to share their feedback too so we share a questionnaire with them every year.
We are pet friendly
We are very proud to have received a platinum award from the RSPCA for our pet friendly policy and we embrace the difference pets can make to our residents.
We are in our fifth consecutive year of winning a Housing Footprints award. This accolade shows that the RSPCA recognise our approach to promoting responsible pet ownership and how we acknowledge the positive difference animals can make to our residents. We have 109 pets living among our 800 residents, the majority of which live with residents who occupy our rented sheltered housing and leasehold properties.
Pets are welcome to live with residents in our care homes, but we will need to firstly complete a risk assessment to make sure our care home is an appropriate home for the animal, and that the owner is able to look after their pet, for example, they are able to feed, groom and, if required, exercise it.

"I had just lost my husband when I needed to move home so it was really important for me to find a housing association that was dog friendly so I could bring Lizzie, my west highland terrier, with me. I couldn’t bear to lose another member of my family.
Having Lizzie gives me a purpose to life, I go out walking with her everyday which helps me to keep physically and mentally fit. It means I have something in common with other residents and we have a good chat. Sussex Housing & Care’s pet policy is clear and I know my responsibilities as a pet owner.”
Resident from Nevill Court, Crowborough.
We are not for profit
We are a not for profit housing association. This means we make a surplus each year which we reinvest back into the organisation in order to continiously improve our properties and the quality of life of our residents. We strive to create brighter living every day.
