Residential Dementia Care in Sussex

Our residential dementia care in Sussex doesn’t mean compromise on quality of life

We’re passionate about freedom of choice at Fairdene Lodge, and what we mean by this is that staff are always encouraging residents to make their own decisions about things like how they spend their day, what meals they eat, and when they have visitors. We believe that this, along with comfortable accommodation, high standards of healthcare, and tailored care plans, makes quality of life for our residents excellent.

It’s important to us that residents choose how they spend their time, so we have a varied activities programme in place, with full time activities staff to plan and oversee it. From games like dominos and cards, to light exercise, to reading and arts and crafts, activities vary each day, so there’s plenty to entertain everyone. Lots of outings and walks are arranged for a regular change of scenery, and there’s plenty of meaningful activities to take part in like dusting, folding washing and laying the table.

Meal times are hugely important at Fairdene Lodge, and we make it a priority to consistently support and encourage our residents to eat and drink well. Nutritious, varied meal options are created every day by our talented chef, which means there’s always something tasty to look forward to. Two options are offered at each meal, but alternatives can always be created for residents who fancy something different. We understand that many of our residents have special dietary requirements, and we ensure these are always catered for.

Fairdene Lodge operates an open door policy, which means friends and relatives are welcome to visit at any time. We believe in making life for the residents as free as possible, which means receiving visitors when it suits them, just as they would at home.

We’re proud to be a residential home near Brighton that doesn’t compromise on quality of life for our residents. Find out more about our home here.
