Happy Christmas from all at Whitegates!

More like a country hotel than a residential home in rural Sussex

Whitegates is a leading residential and nursing care home in Hastings for up to 24 older people, which exudes the comfort, style and atmosphere of a country hotel.

Located on the outskirts of the village of Westfield, just a few miles from Hastings, the home is set deep within the Sussex countryside and enjoys two acres of landscaped gardens amid some five acres of private grounds.

Supported by an outstanding care team, the secluded style of this privately owned home creates a relaxing retreat for people who can feel right at home while receiving the support they need.

Our commitment to care

Whitegates is a country style care home situated in the East Sussex village of Westfield that is committed to providing outstanding person-centred support in an environment that is always warm, friendly and homely. Rated as ‘excellent’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the care homes regulator, Whitegates is completely focused on helping each of its residents.

The dedicated care team is on duty 24 hours a day, with all of our staff undergoing rigorous ongoing training, to ensure we are maintaining the highest standards of care. Tailored care plans are created to fully meet a person’s changing health needs from physical activities to their spiritual wellbeing.

Lifestyle at Whitegates

All meals are planned to ensure that they have high nutritional value, although we are more than happy to cater for special diets and individual preferences. Residents are encouraged to dine together in order to foster a social atmosphere and develop a sense of kinship.

Activities are a vital aspect of our care programme on a daily basis. We encourage residents to continue doing the things which they have always enjoyed in order to help maintain their sense of purpose and self-worth. We therefore ensure a wide range of activities are available so that residents can continue the pursuit of their interests and hobbies – this helps them to lead as active a lifestyle as they wish. In addition, the dedicated Activities Coordinator will always be creating plans and accommodating special interests wherever possible.

We also welcome feedback from our residents and relatives committee, which plays a key role in helping to develop new ideas and suggestions with regard to the running of the home and the services it offers.
