More like a country hotel than a residential home in rural Sussex
Set in five acres of beautiful countryside here in Sussex, Whitegates is a small, privately owned residential and retirement home, committed to providing person-centred care and support in an environment that is warm, friendly and homely. Approved by the Care Quality Commission, the care homes regulator, and rated as 'excellent' in their latest inspection, our home has been built with the comfort and practical convenience of our elderly residents as the priority. Our dedicated and caring 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.
Striking the balance between companionship and privacy in East Sussex retirement homes is crucial, and we have worked hard to get this just right. All of our care packages – whether short or long term – are designed with the individual’s specific needs in mind. Each resident has a tailored care plan, the details of which are agreed by the individual and their family. These are regularly reviewed, to ensure the care being delivered is wholly appropriate. The care plan is designed to meet the resident’s holistic needs throughout their stay with us, from their health and spiritual wellbeing to their physical and day-to-day living requirements.

3 Star (Excellent) is the Highest Star Rating Attainable
The home has been purpose-built to ensure it is easy for our residents to move around comfortably. The ground and first floor are completely level for ease of mobility, as are the two acres of landscaped gardens. All of our rooms have been tastefully furnished and decorated, with the highest standards of cleanliness and presentation throughout. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, colour television and video connection, as well as an intercom and nurse call system. The garden is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the stunning sunshine we (sometimes) get here in Hastings! The grounds of our East Sussex residential home are also home to a number of secluded areas with benches, as well as a secluded patio area and arbour.
Many of our residents want to pursue their hobbies and maintain as active a lifestyle as possible. We have our own dedicated Activities Coordinator to ensure that there is always something going on, from arts and crafts to regular day trips and outings. Here at Whitegates our ultimate aim is to provide a caring and enjoyable environment in which our residents feel completely supported, whilst granting them as much independence as their personal circumstances permit.
